ORGANIC VITICULTURE AND CLIMATE CHANGE: SUAVIA WINERY TRACES A BUDGET OF THE FIRST 10 YEARS OF ORGANIC MANAGEMENT OF ITS VINEYARDS AND THE THEME OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Now, after more than 10 years of commitment that led to obtaining organic certification in 2019, the winery takes stock of the work done and the results obtained, also in light of the environmental upheavals that are also involving the world of wine.

For many years Suavia, an oenological pearl located in the Soave Classico area (VR), has been committed to a management of wine production that aims at organic

We have embarked on this path with great conviction and with the aim of continuing on this path - say Alessandra and Meri Tessari, co-owners of Suavia - We believe that a biological approach, not only to viticulture but to agriculture in general, can be the only alternative to continue developing the primary sector in the future, in the light of the consequences brought by climate change. Organic viticulture protects the soil and the environment that welcomes our work every day, allows us to enjoy healthy food for the benefit of everyone's health, to guarantee an income for the next generations, allowing the sector to progress. Continuing on this path is a duty and it is important that the political class also marks a trail in this sense ”.

The good practices that Suavia implements aim to protect the landscape and the environment of Soave as much as possible and include grassing actions, non-use of synthetic products in the vineyard but exclusively treatments of organic origin. Using very mature compost there is a natural enrichment of the soil which is put in a position to regenerate going against any principle of desertification . Thanks to the sponge effect that allows water to be retained and the soil to be more compact, the risks posed by drought are removed as well as the danger of erosion.

In addition to these fundamental advantages that fall on a systemic level, we have noticed that our production is also reaping significant benefits . – explains the oenologist and co-owner Valentina TessariWe work with plants that have acquired greater resistance and which produce smaller berries and bunches, guaranteeing a higher concentration of aromatic substances on the pulp and peel. This allows the vines we grow, especially Garganega and Trebbiano, to fully express the terroir of origin in the glass. The I Luogos line, three crus that we will officially present in September, will celebrate this bond which is enhanced through the biological approach ”.

An approach which, in addition to numerous positive sides, brings with it some great difficulties that the company encounters, from the high economic costs to the strong commitment from the point of view of the personnel who find themselves in a hilly area. An agriculture that becomes heroic and which includes treatments that are often limited and to be carried out in a dark condition.

“ What has convinced us to continue this path are also the ways in which the final consumers are welcoming us, with growing sensitivity to the subject and with a predisposition to want to know the entire supply chain and, consequently, spend higher sums for a product of high quality ” – say Alessandra, Meri and Valentina Tessari – “ This curiosity that we find in the public excites us, and is even more the driving force to have the determination to continue on this path
