Between 2006 and 2009, alongside WWF, the world’s leading ecological NGO, we committed our support to the programme for the defence of Mediterranean cork oak forests. In these forests biodiversity is a major concern.

All the Mediterranean plant and animal life is represented in them and certain rare species are to be found there, such as the Iberian cat.
The cork oak is one of the few trees that can resist fire, thanks to its thick cork bark. This is a considerable asset in the Mediterranean region where the summers are particularly hot and sometimes devastating. Century-old oaks also offer the advantage of forming a carbon sink trapping CO2, which is responsible for global warming.

For our wines we use natural cork with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification, offering a guarantee of sustainable forestry management.
