Always caring about the sustainability of its practices, Bava obtained certification in 2024 for its vineyards and hazelnut groves according to the SQNPI (Sistema Qualità Nazionale Produzione Integrata – National Quality System Integrated Production) standard.

Integrated Production is a whole farm management system which aims to deliver more sustainable agriculture combining modern tools and technologies with traditional practices according to a given site and situation.

 

Our commitment to environmental protection has a long tradition and is embodied in the daily good practices in the vineyard and winery summarized in the Bava.Green manifesto: https://www.bava.com/bava-idee-per-ambiente/il-manifesto/

Bava is a low environmental impact winery with a tradition of sustainability:

  • Solar panels on the rooftop provide 150% of the electricity needed in the winery, producing 450 thousand kWh per year which corresponds to 180 thousand kg of CO2 not released into the atmosphere.
  • Rainwater is collected and reused in the cellar and in the vineyards.
  • Only natural corks seal Bava wines.
  • The glass of Bava  wine bottles is at least 80% recycled.
  • Bava bottles weigh 500 grams or less, at least 20% less than the average, saving in materials and CO₂ emissions during transportation.
  • Vegan friendly wines (self-certified).
  • Twenty  hectares of woods, the grass and the vines themselves contribute to compensate the CO₂ emissions due to wine making and transportation.
  • Complete grass covering in vineyards with  clover, oat grass and barley  for fighting soil erosion.
  • Reuse of vine pruning, winery pressing and grass mowing as natural fertilizers together with manure.
  • Integrated pest control methods for a limited impact on the environment.
  • ZERO CHEMICAL RESIDUALS: as a consequence of our low environmental impact approach in vineyard,  our wines show no chemical residuals of the treatments.
  • SQNPI: We are SQNPI certified, confirming our long-standing and ongoing commitment to sustainability.
