Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices


The main Sustainable Wine Tourism Practice of Verallia  Recycle Glass Campaign: “Vidrio, una acción transparente”

Verallia Argentina launched the glass recycling campaign “Vidrio, una acción transparente”, to promote environmental awareness and support of nonprofit institutions. 

This campaign was initiated four years ago. It consists of placing containers in strategically located venues (Supermarkets, Shopping, Instituto Nacional Vitivinícola, etc.) where people can deposit their glass bottles instead of throwing them away. Verallia donates the value of this glass to an organization of public welfare, which in this case is the Dr. Humberto Notti Children's Hospital Foundation who intends this donation for the construction of Rehabilitation Center.

Since its beginnings in June 2012, the recycle glass campaign had donated $235.000 = 240.000 kilogram of glass collected to recycle. We started with 4 containers and today we have 30.

Weingut Bernhard-Räder

The family enterprise Weingut Bernhard-Räder from Flomborn is awarded the prize for Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices. Vegan organic wines, dishes partly prepared with ingredients cultivated on the premises of the estate, Rheinhessen's first Bach flower garden with a medicinal plant tour, or the successful transition to organic viticulture in 2013, demonstrate the Flomborn-based family enterprise's continual focus on sustainability and quality. This concept persuaded the jury to honour the estate once more with a Best of Award. The wine estate had already received the prize in the category for Architecture and Landscapes in 2011.
