WE ARE GREEN

Our headquarters has been designed with a special attention to environment. The choice to invest in highly sophisticated systems, which permit substantial independence, expresses the will to save energy and use renewable sources. By adopting the principles of recyclability and organic farming techniques, Distilleria Bottega can be considered a green company from all perspectives. The main points are the following:

  • Geothermal conditioning. The geothermal conditioning system exploits the heat of the earth in terms of energy, allowing the company facilities to be naturally conditioned and with a pleasant sense of wellness.
  • Thermal energy generated by biomass. An innovative distillation system supplied by waste marcs, the waste material from the grappa production, is being created.
  • Ecological packaging. The concepts of reuse and recyclability are very important since they influence our choices leading us to use materials that are respectful of the environment.
  • Organic vineyards. The vineyards planted in 2007 around the company premises are grown in accordance with the principles of organic farming. In this land, the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, GMOs and all derivatives is strictly banned.
  • Water indipendent distillery. A new water recirculation system was introduced in the distillery in July 2014. The water used in the distillation process is air cooled by special fans and conducted in a closed circuit. This solution dramatically reduces the water consumption of the whole procedure.
