sustainable viticulture

As a company, we have decided that we want to continue viticulture in Germany in the future. This is not just about growing grapes on agricultural land and producing luxury food from them.

Rather, it is about not only preserving the vineyards as a typical cultural landscape, but also making an active contribution to sustainable agriculture as a whole by utilising this cultural landscape in the future. Both in viticulture itself and as a role model for other crops.

Criteria for sustainable viticulture

Viticulture is sustainable if it can be carried out in the same place over the long term, i.e. for many generations into the future. Sustainability in viticulture means the integrative and equal consideration of economic, ecological and social goals in the context of production. The principle of nature-orientated management applies. Some of the criteria for sustainable viticulture according to the FAIR’N Green Standard are

– Measures for the preservation of biodiversity, soil and water protection
– Integrated plant protection with sustainability assessment
– Reduced use of fossil fuels based on specific improvement targets, for which the life cycle assessment and carbon footprint provide indications

Indulgence with a clear conscience

The FAIR’N GREEN system offers our members the flexibility they need to practise sustainable viticulture in a way that is customised to each individual winery. At the same time, each winery fulfils clearly defined minimum requirements and undertakes to continuously improve its sustainability rating.

Sustainable viticulture therefore means: indulgence with a clear conscience. Sustainable wines with the FAIR’N GREEN certification fulfil high standards in all areas of sustainability. This also includes moderate consumption, which is why we are happy to support corresponding campaigns.
