SUSTAINABLE BEST PRACTICES
let’s TOAST to a more SUSTAINABLE WORLD
The winemaking sector in Spain and Portugal contributes to the social and environmental sustainability of Europe, guaranteeing the future of many rural areas, creating thousands of jobs that prevent their depopulation and conserving the environment, protecting against soil erosion and helping to prevent forest fires, thanks to the low density of vine rootstock, which hampers the spread of fire.
Additionally, thanks to the new strategy implemented by the European Union “From Farm to Fork”, based on sustainability and caring for the environment, the Spanish and Portuguese winemaking sectors have prioritised sustainable production and ensuring the quality and safety of European wines.
To that end, in recent years, the European winemaking industry has made a concerted effort to develop new production models that help make production processes more efficient, thereby reducing the sector’s environmental impact.
