At Altanza, we work day by day with the main goal of reducing our environmental impact. The health of our land and surroundings has been a constant priority since our beginnings. We strive daily to diminish our carbon footprint, starting from the vineyard, through the entire winemaking process, and up to the point of commercialization. For years, we have been investing in R&D projects that, aside from enhancing the quality of our wines, have represented a significant investment in sustainability.
We reduce environmental impact by prioritizing recycling at each stage, through the development of a comprehensive sustainability project, focusing on energy treatment, water management, waste disposal, and packaging. In selecting our packaging, we prioritize the use of recyclable materials and those sourced locally (km 0).
Our bottle, separator, and box suppliers produce from recycled materials. Additionally, 40% of our wines utilize DIAM technology, ensuring superior quality by being TCA-free, allowing us to bottle with lower levels of free SO2.
We have our own geothermal plant that provides us with clean energy, along with a water treatment plant. In the vineyard, we use aerial monitoring to gain in-depth insights into the water needs of our vines, ensuring excellent water management.
We employ precision rain gauges to measure precipitation, moisture probes, dendrometers to assess the overall condition of the plant from the roots, and a sophisticated system of soil pits (calicatas) to understand the composition, root system, and water needs of our soil.
All our wines are vegan; in their production, we do not use ingredients of animal origin such as egg, milk, or gelatin. For clarification, we use plant-based and mineral filters.
We strive for excellence in the production of our wines. We are certified with the most demanding international and national standards in terms of quality, management, and food product marketing – BRC Food, IFS Food, ISO 9001, ISO 14001.
