Sense and sustainability: How wine producers are protecting the environment

Sebastian Tramon, sustainability manager, Viñedos Emiliana

“At Emiliana we believe that organic and biodynamic practices are the key to working in a sustainable way, particularly when it comes to the regeneration and care for our soils. Hence, we are improving the way we produce compost, which is the main food for the soils in our vineyards.

We are working with consultants, other companies and research centres to achieve this goal. The biodiversity under the soil is important to us, so we are devoted to understanding what is living in our soils and how we can increase the presence of beneficial microorganisms.

We also believe that in soils there is an opportunity to avoid emissions of greenhouse gases. By constantly adding organic matter to our soils we are helping to stabilise carbon that otherwise would go into the atmosphere.”
