RRR establishes soil-handling limits for new vineyards in order to preserve the landscape and the territory integrity.
Consorzio Tutela Vini Valpolicella (the promoter of the Protocol) gives sustainable guidelines to the farmers on how to renew the vineyards in accordance with the soil resources, and measures on the conservation of characteristic elements of the Valpolicella landscape.
The RRR’s main objective is producing quality grapes by mastering high technical and agricultural sustainable standards. Indeed, being based on Sustainable practices, the Protocol strives to foster the concept of “Reasoned Viticulture”.
The Protocol assumes on one hand that respect for the invironment and the public health is totally and utterly necessary and on the other that Reasoned Viticulture is a way of producing quality grapes.
Reasoned Viticulture consists in decreasing the pest control treatments, thus harmless chemicals and fertilizers are employed not systematically, but only when it is necessary, while dangerous products and herbicides are banned.
Moreover, the Protocol has set specific guidelines aimed at improving the water management by avoiding wastefulness.
Decreasing the amount of treatments, banning the herbicides and using the water wisely result in economizing the natural and the company resources.
HOW DOES RRR WORK?
RRR Protocol has been designed by Consorzio Tutela Vini Valpolicella (the “Wine Board” of Valpolicella) in order to:
decrease the usage of chemicals in viticulture
protect the environment and the public health
save the natural and the company resources
Every vintage, the grape and wine production is monitored and verified by a Third-Party called SIQURIA. Thus, the validity of the certification is exclusively seasonal.
“We take care of our land and its fruits in order to raise its prestige throughout the world. Our activities are aimed at safeguarding, enhancing and promoting the products, the identity and the culture of Valpolicella”.
