Sense and sustainability: How wine producers are protecting the environment

Elena Carretero, director of sustainability, Santa Rita 

“Sustainable development is the main pillar of Santa Rita’s strategic map. We have put in place a sustainability programme of initiatives with a special emphasis on creating shared values with our community and improving the lives of our workers and their families.

Our WiSe project stems from the need to produce wines of the best quality and optimal productivity. We analyse the soils to select the best variety and rootstock, considering geology, soils, exposure to the sun, irrigation and the plant itself.

We optimise the use of our resources, ensuring the long- term sustainability of our grape supply. We have also implemented procedures to optimise energy and water efficiency in our vineyards, cellars and production plants.”
