Sustainable agriculture and environmental preservation
For excellent Tuscany
At our estates we pay scrupulous attention to all principles of
Integrated Production and Sustainable Agriculture, and as of
2012 our estates have received AgriQualità certification from
the Region of Tuscany. AgriQualità cetification is awarded for
the use of ecologically sustainable farming techniques compatible
with the protection of the natural environment.
The estates of Castello di Nipozzano and Castello di Pomino
were the first in Tuscany to receive PEFC certification
(the international ‘Programme for the Endorsement
of Forest Certification’) which guarantees sustainable
management of our forests.
We are using new lighter-weight and environmentally friendly bottles
in order to:
• reduce the use of glass
• reduce energy and water consumption for the production
• reduce CO2 emission, during production and transportation
Thanks to these new bottles, the expected CO2 reduction, for one year,
should be over 350 tons.
Green energy resources
We have chosen to use photovoltaic systems as a source of renewable energy on our estates:
• the average annual energy yields of our solar panels 335.435 KWh
• the average annual CO2 decrease is 226.419 Kg.
