In Trentino, home of Altemasi, sustainability has been a central part of the local culture. Over the years, Altemasi has made a commitment to sustainability by implementing both Eco-Friendly Vineyard and Winery practices which include but are not limited to: Sustainable Farming & Pest Control, Leaf Pulling, Renewable Energy, Water Conservation, and Green Packaging.
Current initiatives & achievements include
Carbon Footprint Management
Altemasi limits the use of pesticides and practices eco-sustainable farming including cover crops, sustainable pest control, and natural fertilizers.
We have installed 3,200 solar panels on top of our warehouse and production facility. These panels generate around 800 Mwh (megawatt hours) per year, and power 66% of electricity during the production process.
Altemasi wine bottles are made with 80% recycled glass. We have transitioned to lighter bottles, which in turn allows us to reduce transport and handling weights, thus minimizing the impact on the environment and reducing our carbon footprint.
In an effort to reduce water waste, we have installed modern industrial systems that utilize a high precision irrigation process, using water only when necessary.
Altemasi cases use 99% recycled cardboard and all Cavit labels and cases are printed using water-based ink that is solvent-free and contain no chemical compounds.
