Spotlight On: Wines of Alentejo Sustainability Certified Producers
Created in 2015, the Wines of Alentejo Sustainability Programme is a unique certification programme, the first in Portugal. 641 associated members, occupying about 60% of the planted vineyards (±13,464 ha) are already putting into practice the rigorous process of implementing sustainability practices, and currently 12 producers have managed to obtain this certification. The programme supports improvements in environmental and social sectors, as well as the economic performance of Alentejo’s wine industry and covers from the all the viticultural aspects to the production in the cellar and beyond.
SITT Autumn is THE opportunity to discover, IN ONE PLACE, the first 12 certified Alentejo producers, who are 'making differently, so everything stays the same!'
