SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES

Wine industry in our country has undertaken a leading role in the so-called green business practices. At the Argyriou winery, we implement a production model aiming at the best result, committing ourselves to the natural environment being our top priority, therefore actively participating in a series of important programs that shape the future of the wine industry.

We take care of the land and return to nature all that we get from it

VINEYARDS

  • CONTROLLED IRRIGATION: 70% of the vineyard is irrigated by a controlled irrigation system (with small pipes), which reduces unnecessary water consumption.

 

  • CULTIVATION: Every autumn we cultivate rows of vineyard grounds with covered-up crops, among which oats, and vetch, thus providing protection against soil erosion, besides the introduction of "green fertilization" to ensure soil health.

  • SΥNTHESIS: At every harvest we compress all the old vines and other plant materials; they are ground in order to spread in the vineyards, thus helping maintain soil and vineyard health.

PRODUCTION

  • CARDBOARD BOXES FOR WINE BOTTLES: Those are produced from Kraft cardboard (natural brown) to ensure an environmentally-friendly and recyclable medium. Kraft cardboard is free of chlorine and has a higher percentage of recycled paper inside the cardboard.

  • LABELS: The inks used for the labels and the cartons are water-based and not solvent-based.

  • BOTTLES: The glass used for Argyriou wines is lightweight; using glass lighter in weight reduces carbon emissions during transport of lighter cases. All bottles use up to 55% recycled glass.

  • CAPSULES AND CORKS: Natural corks are biodegradable and renewable. The tin capsules used for all the wines of our winery are recyclable

WINERY

  • RECYCLING: We recycle paper, boxes, cartons, and bottles. Packaging and bottling consumables come in containers that are fully recyclable, including the shrinkage of cardboard and plastic. Even plastic padding on labels is recycled.

  • ENERGY USE: The lighting equipment has been updated to reduce energy consumption. Cooling systems in production have been upgraded to high-efficient energy systems, reducing energy use by 20%.

  • WATER SAVING: We encourage water saving practices on the part of our employees, by continually monitoring water use and are constantly looking for innovative ways to implement other water saving practices.
