Applying sustainability to wine
Sustainable Austria is a seal of quality for wines produced in a sustainable way. They are produced in observance of certain economic, ecological and social criteria, and are closely scrutinised to ensure that they adhere to these principles. From the harvesting of the grapes through to élevage and bottling, the entire production process is examined and evaluated in relation to its contribution to sustainability. The priority is not just to manage the vines and the soil carefully, but also to focus on how the production process impacts on the environment, for instance through greenhouse gases, in order to comply with the European Commission’s European Green Deal requirements.
