Ecology and Environment
Since the last renovation completed in 1995, Torre del Veguer has preserved the personality of the estate, its scenery, away from residential buildings to identify with their natural territory
We are committed to environmental sustainability, we only have one planet and we must care and respect to the maximum so that he respects us. Global warming, increased ozone depletion because some countries do not meet the quota of emissions of CO2 and other polluting gases do not help this. Perhaps the reason that occur Tsunamis, tornadoes and other extreme weather events.
From Torre del Veguer we think that everyone should contribute their bit and this is ours: separating waste and recycling, try to print the minimum paper, use recycled paper and we do more incapié is not to use pesticides and other pollutants in the care of the vineyard gases, following the rules and guidelines of the CCPA.
Following the philosophy of the property, all our vineyard has been registered in the Catalan Council of Producció Ecological Agricultural (CCPA) in 2010 and 2013 and for harvest 2016 100% of our wines and have the official certification of Wines ecological.
Because of the uncertainty of change, we started in 2010 with the Xarel.lo whose skin is harder and resistant to diseases and the experience was successful. Already in 2013 we continue with all the other grape varieties.
Organic viticulture prevents the use of products derived from chemical synthesis, we can not find naturally. These would eradicate the infection immediately. Yes it allows the use of natural products that stop the infection but it is still there latent, so we must be vigilant to not be reactivated again.
We use the technique of sexual confusion of botrana Lobesia: it is small emitters of female pheromones that attract males but they ultimately find females. Inhibitors are playing the vine moth, which allows us to have fewer illnesses.
Because of the proximity to the sea and moisture it entails changing traditional ecological viticulture it has not been easy. Remember that damp, dark and unventilated areas are hotbeds of infection. Therefore, we must get off the tractor and manually treat the vineyard, as once it did. Green pruning that takes place in the months of May and June is fundamental to the well ventilated and protected from diseases vineyard work. It is also very important to be aware of the rain, because water takes the natural product and the vineyard is unprotected.
The care of fauna such as the bee-eater (Abellerol in Catalan), the hoopoes (Puput in Catalan) and goldfinch (Cadernera in Catalan), as well as its flora, especially the chamaerops, currently protected, has been constant over the years.
