When it comes to consuming wine, there are more factors to consider than just taste. People are becoming increasingly mindful of how their wine is produced, and environmentally friendly and natural wine production is a growing trend.
In Friuli, Italy, a region known for its crisp and aromatic white wines, especially Prosecco, there are many winemakers who prioritize sustainable practices and natural techniques. SYLTBAR is lucky to come from one of these producers. Our producer, San Simone, believes in social responsibility to treat the Earth with kindness and respect, and in turn it will do the same for us.
Our producers are proud participants of the Italian Green Project, which is essentially a set of guidelines that focus on environmental sustainability of the business as a whole. The Brisotto family has been producing natural wines for over 105 years, and this set of actions, behaviors and procedures have been a very important driving point for them since the very beginning.
Benefits of Natural, Sustainable Winemaking
What sets natural and environmentally friendly wine production apart is the lack of added sulfites, sugars, chemicals, and preservatives. This allows for a pure and unadulterated product, which can be easier on the body and the environment. While some people may have concerns about sulfites in wine, all wine naturally contains sulfites to some degree - the concern is with added sulfites. By using naturally occurring yeasts and fermentation methods, natural winemakers can create a low-sulfite wine. When you are drinking SYLTBAR, you can be sure that there are absolutely zero added sulfites, sugars or chemicals. Our wines are pure, with nothing added and nothing removed.
Natural and sustainable wine producing practices are better for the environment in a number of ways. They promote the use of natural fertilizers and pest control methods that do not harm the soil, water, or wildlife in the surrounding environment. They conserve water by prioritizing irrigation, reducing runoff, and utilizing drip irrigation techniques. Additionally, these practices contribute to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by minimizing pesticide and fertilizer use, controlling energy consumption, and utilizing renewable energy sources. Sustainable wine producing practices also help preserve the biodiversity of the surrounding ecosystem, maintaining the habitat for other creatures that may live there. By implementing sustainable practices in the production of wine, producers can reduce their environmental impact while also producing high-quality, healthy wines for consumers.
Natural Wine Production Leads to Lower Sugar
Aside from all of the wonderful ways sustainable, natural wine production helps the environment, it also leads to lower sugar content, as you know if you are an avid SYLBAR drinker. Since the wine is being made primarily with the natural yeasts found in the grapes and the surrounding environment, there is less opportunity for sugar to be added during fermentation. In SYLTBAR’s case, no sugar needs to be added at all.
