…il respiro di una grande tradizione…
The Collalto family rigorously observes the provisions of the viticultural protocols established by the member Communes of the Consorzio del Prosecco Superiore, aimed at ensuring low environmental impacts.
A TRADITION OF INNOVATION
Conte Collalto continues on its ancestral path, experimenting with new approaches for improving quality in its vineyards. One example is changing the vine-training systems in order to further improve grape quality.
In the same optic are zonation studies that focus on various levels of climate, enabling the vineyardists to follow the impact of weather, season by season, on vine and vineyard growth.
Per i suoi interventi a favore del territorio e della sostenibilità ambientale l’azienda è stata insignita del titolo di “Cantina eco fiendly” al Merano Wine Festival.
Conte Collalto’s bond with its own land has been long and close, a sentiment composed of passion and respect that finds its concrete expression in uninterrupted initiatives for preserving the integrity of its own corner of earth. To further this objective, the winery has encouraged fruitful relationships with expert agronomists to study weather patterns and local geologic characteristics, in an effort to achieve vine growth balance. Installation of weather-monitoring stations in the vineyards has made possible constant weather observation, with resultant savings in water use and sustainable application of anti-pest treatments.
A long-time supporter of environmental sustainability, Conte Collalto installed, in the early 2000s, a heating plant that utilises pruning wood as a renewable energy source.
