Environmental protection and circular economy are issues we care about strongly. Grape marc, as well as wine, must and pomaces are natural raw materials, linked to the viticulture cycle, and regularly used for our production. It is our intention to make the supply chain of vine cultivation and its derivates, sustainable.

The ancient and alchemical process of distillation, by which we obtain our grappas, is central and decisive in the management of the energy ( in the form of heat) and organic waste production.

Some of the concrete solutions we have adopted:

  • About the distillation process, an old diesel burner which fed the steam boiler, was recently replaced with a modern LPG plant, consequently leading to a significant reduction of CO2 emissions.
  • During the distillation cycle, to allow cooling and condensation of the alcoholic vapors, the grappa passes through condensers in which cold water circulates. Once its function as a heat exchanger is finished, the water is not dispersed: with a system of pumps and pipes, it is again cooled by the so-called cooling tower. This allow to reintroduce water into the circuit. Through this method the amount of water recovered is more than 90 %.
  • The end of the distillation process does not coincide with the end of the grape marc cycle. In fact, when it is exhausted, it is transported and supplied to some factories for the production of biogas , thus managing to produce clean energy from completely renewable sources .
  • Compatibly with their availability, the search for raw materials (for the production of grappa and brandy, but also for amaro) takes place as much as possible within the Piedmont territory, to support all local producers as much as possible.

These are our first steps: our commitment is renewed day by day. Moreover, we aspire to a continuous improvement of environmental sustainability. We trust in a small contribution so that it can, if shared and projected to the common goal of helping our Planet, constitute a great vision.
