The next generation
We are winemakers, men of the “earth”, who value sustainable agriculture and want to preserve the environment. Decisions are taken only after much thought about the impact on the wider community and on future generations.
Our dedication is a tangible commitment, not only to making the best use of our soil but to every single aspect of life at Il Borro.
The principles of biodynamic cultivation and sustainability are evident in numerous projects on the estate: solar power, the use of electric vehicles and the construction of a biomass power plant have all minimized our impact on the environment.
Conversion to biodynamic cultivation of the vineyards got underway in 2015. Running an organic business implies a certain way of living, observing and respecting the land. The aim is to help the land regenerate itself, preserving its fertility and so keeping the quality of the product high. The company’s principles are clear – exclusive use of natural fertilizers and organic pesticides for cultivation of the vineyards, olive groves and honey, ethical and eco-sustainable cuisine, and the use of renewable energy for the Relais&Chateaux. An increasing number of the Relais properties are “zero-energy bills”, powered exclusively by renewable energy. An important step towards total energy autonomy, a negative carbon footprint and all-round wellbeing.
