SUSTAINABILITY

Since 2015 the production in the vineyards of Cascina La Zerba di Volpedo has been totally converted to certified organic production (ICEA body).
A choice dictated by love for the territory and the desire to preserve its biodiversity: for us organic production — explains Carlo Volpi — is simply a question of respect”.

This consideration in the vineyard translates into the application of integrated pest management to defend the vine from harmful pests, without having to resort to the use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers: the use of special mushrooms allows, for example, protection from many fungi harmful to the vine.

BIODIVERSITY in the vineyard is favoured, where flowers, grass and grass grow freely, home to many forms of life that help maintain a fundamental balance in the vineyard. The grass, on the other hand, which grows spontaneously even among the vine trunks, and which must be constantly removed, is mechanically eliminated without the use of herbicides. The woods, next to the vineyards, are kept tidy and clean through seasonal cleaning and management of greenery.

ENERGY SAVING AND CLEAN ENERGY: Cantine Volpi aims to reduce energy consumption through several choices
  • the use of Select Green caps, made without leaving any carbon footprint, using vegetable polymers obtained from sugar cane, 100% recyclable.
  • the modernization of the winemaking plant in 2019 which brought several benefits
    • eduction of 8 tons of CO2 per year
    • zeroing of water consumption for refrigeration
    • rationalization of the use of electricity by modulating the energy load
  • improvement of the electrical system and replacement of neon lights with more efficient LED lights.
Cantine Volpi, for more than 10 years, has played an active role in La Fabbrica Sostenibile of Confindustria di Alessandria, an annual event in which companies in the province pledge their commitment to reduce the environmental footprint, to improve the conditions of the local community and to promote the development of the territory.
