Sense and sustainability: How wine producers are protecting the environment

Pedro Salguero, chief winemaker, Bodega Ijalba 


“Our aim is to protect and respect the characteristics of our land, which is why in 1998 we became the first organic-certified winery in Rioja.

The water used in the winery has been purified and gathered to hydrate the vineyards and refrigerate the tanks during fermentation. The stems from pruning are used to fertilise our vineyards. We’re lowering our carbon footprint by reducing the weight of our glass bottles and the thickness of our packaging.”
