Every day Colomba Bianca renews its commitment towards the care for the environment and the protection of the surrounding area, through the adoption of a coordinated system of best practices, based on the production philosophy that is focused on promoting the environmental sustainability, in order to offer a better future to the next generations. The responsible use of natural resources, along with the care for the environment, embrace the entire production cycle of Colomba Bianca: form the vineyard to the final product, the company is committed in promoting an environmental sustainability policy that tends to minimize the impact of man on the surrounding nature.
A production philosophy that, through the model of precision viticulture, finds its maximum expression into 1.800 hectares of vineyard, cultivated using organic methods. Today, Colomba Bianca is indeed one of the greatest organic wine producers in Europe. In addition, VeganOk certification involves a large part of production, thanks to the exclusive use of plant-based proteins. The commitment of Colomba Bianca to protecting and safeguarding the environment is also complemented with some initiatives in terms of energy efficiency, thanks to the use of renewable energy sources. The photovoltaic systems located in the plants of Salemi, Campobello and Mazara allow the development of an annual power production of 600.00kWh, with savings of energy in the bill equal to 0,16€, for a total of 77.241€.

In 2021, Cantine Colomba Bianca decided to take the path of sustainability by achieving the VIVA and SOStain sustainable certifications, typical of the wine sector and recognised at international level.

SOStain certification is characterised by 10 requirements that we can imagine as a series of ingredients of a recipe that, if accurately followed, allows Sustainable Sicilian wine to enrich consumers’ tables.

In 2021, Cantine Colomba Bianca decided to take the path of sustainability by achieving the VIVA and SOStain sustainable certifications, typical of the wine sector and recognised at international level.

SOStain certification is characterised by 10 requirements that we can imagine as a series of ingredients of a recipe that, if accurately followed, allows Sustainable Sicilian wine to enrich consumers’ tables.

The SOStain 10 requirements encompasses the VIVA indicators calculation, specific measurable and verifiable indicators recognised and designed by the Ministry of Ecologic Transition, in collaboration with the Universities Research centres. 

Achieving these two certifications marks a very deep step of evolution for Colomba Bianca, therefore the improvement of sustainability performances will be undisputed protagonist of Colomba Bianca’s choices in the years to come.
