At Lagar do Vento we are committed to another way of making wine, integrating our vineyard into the natural and human landscape. We are pioneers in regenerative viticulture and we constantly work on generating solutions to create a positive impact on our ecosystem.
Our vineyard is located in the Ribeira Sacra biosphere reserve, a special environment, but extremely fragile. For this reason, we believe that we are responsible for their care, avoiding industrial practices that deplete the soil and harm biodiversity.
Finally, we are committed to the rural development of the Concello de Chantada, where the farms are located. We believe that the natural landscape cannot be understood without the human landscape in a place where the winemaking tradition goes back centuries and even millennia. Our commitment is to help ensure that this relationship can be maintained by preserving local employment and helping to prevent rural exodus.
What is regenerative viticulture?Historically, agriculture has come at a huge environmental cost. Regenerative viticulture aims not only to conserve the environment but also to regenerate the soil and environment while maximizing the opportunity to inhibit human-induced climate change. We are the only members in Galicia of the pioneering Regenerative Viticulture Association, which brings together vineyards and wineries in SpainThat seek to help reverse climate change, as well as the Regenerative Viticulture Foundation, a global association aligned with the UN's sustainable development goals.
