Chilean Wine: The Quality and Sustainability You’re Looking For
The sustainable production of your wines is almost as important to you as their taste, and why shouldn’t it be?
We know that vineyards are monocultures, with pesticides contributing to the increasing loss of biodiversity, especially among insects and birds. Sustainable agricultural practices, as practiced in Chile, commit to the efficient and sustainable use of natural resources within vineyards, processes, social responsibility, and wine tourism.
Since the 1980’s the Chilean government has worked hard to promote sustainable agricultural practices. Both the government and farmers realized that growing organic will yield both better food products as well as higher profits.
Chilean wine is world-renowned for its quality and a leader in sustainability. The process to becoming “Certified Sustainable” is no easy feat. Chileans assert that sustainable wine production should encompass three important aspects: it should be environmentally friendly, ecologically viable, and socially equitable.
Chile’s varied geography, ideal soil and climate conditions, produce a vast range of unique flavors and styles, all with an eco-friendly guarantee. Consistent dedication to providing top quality and world class wine selections means that a wide variety of delicious flavors is available. When partaking in or gifting Chilean wines, you can sip and give with an easy conscience.
