Wine doesn't need to be dirty business

 
 
ZIOBAFFA SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM copy.jpg

We want to do it better

Organic wine production has many benefits both for the consumer and the environment.  Health benefits show, that on average, organic wine contains higher levels of vitamin C, essential minerals and cancer fighting antioxidants.  Organic farming eliminates over 400 pesticide chemicals routinely used in non-organic farming, benefiting the end consumer and the surrounding farmland and wildlife.

The use of less chemical spray lowers pollution and lessens carbon dioxide emission, promoting a healthier eco-system which not only benefits the surrounding wildlife but also minimizes trace toxins that remain in the food.

We are proud of these incentives.  In the future, ZIOBAFFA & the Castellani family will strive to pursue new and better ways to produce and package our products.

The revolutionary new HELIX™ cork closure on our Toscana and Pinot Grigio wines embraces technology to create a bio-friendly re-usable seal.  We consider this seal more elegant and effective than aluminum screw caps.  Moreover, cork production preserves bio-diversity and is generally regarded as a highly sustainable crop due to the fact that the entire cork tree is not harvested; merely its bark. The tree continues to live and grow.  The sustainability of production and the easy recycling of cork products and by-products are two of its most distinctive aspects.
