OF BEING BIO-DIVERSE
Quota 101 is a Biodiversity Friend certified winery, the safeguard of biodiversity in agriculture, sponsored by the Department of Agricultural, Food and Forest policies.
Being biodiverse means to guarantee the preservation of the fertility of the soil, to manage water supplies efficiently and to control pests and parasites with sustainable methods.
Two questions to Gianfranco Caoduro, one of the founders of the certification.
WHAT IS BIODIVERSITY?
It is the wealth of animal and vegetable species that live in a territory, the base of the life of the planet. The more complex and lively an environment is, the more it manages for its self-sustain and balance.
WHAT DOES THE BIODIVERSITY FRIEND CERTIFICATION MEAN FOR A WINE?
It is the warranty that the farm is managed by people who take care about the territory.
A vineyard that is part of a mosaic of different environments will be less subject to treatments because it is already rich and balanced.
A certified wine is a synonym of quality for the customer.
