LA TORDERA AND CASACLIMA
The new La Tordera winery, built in 2001, expanded first in 2011 an then in 2018, has obtained the “CasaClima Wine” certification, a protocol created by Agenzia CasaClima in Bolzano with the end goal of guaranteeing the sustainability of buildings dedicated to wine production. It evaluates three areas connected to sustainability: ecological quality, socio-cultural quality and economic quality. These determine the environmental impact of the building and housing comfort, the consumption of energy and water in the production of wines, the choice of packaging and the effect of transportation.
We have chosen this path because we love coherence and declarations that turn into facts; our winery, with the "CasaClima" certification, offers our visitors and those who work with us an elevated condition of healthiness and maximum comfort in every space.
• The installation of photovoltaic panels on the roof of our winery, a total area of 750 m2, gives the winery 70% autonomy from an energetic point of view. Moreover, thanks to the installation of solar panels, we produce energy to heat water necessary in different production stages
• The water used to wash the vats and for some of the bottling stages has been reduced and is collect to then be re-used in the supplemental irrigation of the vineyards.
• The new winery made of wood guarantees excellent insulation so that there is no heat exchange between outside and inside, thus maintaining a suitable temperature in every space;
• The spaces in the winery are heated completely with a furnace, which burns the wood collected in the nearby woods, necessary to keep the woods healthy. We use fuel only for the farm machinery, trying however to optimize their use
• Our bottles, customized for our winery, weigh 15% less than the traditional ones used for sparkling wine and they are made of over 80% recycled glass. This allows for a lower fusion temperature and thus a lower dispersion of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
• Our packaging is made of 100% recycled paper and dried virgin pinewood without other treatments.
• Despite the innovations, we are still bound to our territory and history: proof of this is the fact that we prefer manual labour and techniques used in the past. This path we have undertaken allows us to reach our goal of an always “greener” winemaking process in harmony with the environment.
