How did Pfitscher come to be the first winemaker with a CasaClima accreditation in Italy? Simple: we wanted to live and work in harmony with nature. To create a product that is as natural and authentic as possible.
Admittedly, the certificate given to us on completion of our building work wasn’t our primary goal. Rather, we wanted to provide the best backdrop for our wine whilst making it in a way that was kind to the environment. It was only once the construction work was underway that we were even aware this certification from the South Tyrol CasaClima Agency existed. Since the requirements largely overlapped with our ideas, we decided to pursue it. To obtain certification, we had to, and still have to, take numerous measures to be sustainable and environmentally friendly in every aspect of our operations, from cultivation and processing through to packaging. Conservative use of energy and water is a must, and even the living standards have to be right. Working together with the agency, we succeeded in this endeavour.
