THE GREEN PROJECT STANDING FOR
MORE THAN ONLY BEING ORGANIC
What is the Green Project?
Green Project is a set of actions, behaviors and procedures that we put forward to contribute to the environmental sustainability of our business, respecting the existing territorial balance. “ Social liability” has always guided our wine producer with maximum respect for the communities in which the winery operates.
The US Wine Industry
The wine industry has spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying politicians to keep contents label off of wine. Wine manufactures are not required to list their ingredients on the label. Because Wine is regulated by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau ( TTB ) and not the FDA. Which means a bottle of wine ( even expensive, highly rated wines ) can contain up to 72 “ allowed” additives.
How Make Mass- Produced Wine Taste Great
Bad side effects of commercial wines are caused by toxins added during farming and manufacturing. Most of the wines you are buying in stores are farmed with chemicals like Roundup, irrigation water and genetically modified with additives.
Low Sulfites Guarantee
Sulfites are a natural by-product of the fermentation process that work as a preservative against certain bacteria. Short fermentation doesn’t produce enough sulfites to preserve a wine for more than a few weeks. So added sulfites are necessary. Wine ranges from about 5ppm ( 5 parts per million ) to about 250ppm/L. The Legal Limit in the US is 350ppm g/L.
