This system makes maximum use of natural resources, ensuring sustainable agriculture for the environment. This is called Sustainable Viticulture.
The aim is to control vineyard pests so as to prevent plagues that may seriously damage the grape production by using biological methods and reducing chemical treatments in order to achieve a balance between the environment, profitability and demand in order to get high quality, healthy wines. Sustainable Viticulture produces healthy and natural wines, which is reflected in the handling, processing, bottling and labelling of the wines.
In short, it is all about obtaining raw materials through agriculture that uses methods that respect the environment and that ensure food safety in order to produce natural healthy wines.
Gil Bodegas Berzal is committed to the environment by means of a self-evaluation in their manufacturing processes. They do not use herbicides or chemical fertilizers and have reduced the use of pesticides, using only those that are respectful to the environment.
