Final event of the Viñ@Sostible pilot project in which we collaborate


The Viñ@Sostible pilot project, in which we collaborate, celebrates its final face-to-face event at the Pazo de Toubes next Thursday, November 23rd at 10:00 am. Representatives of the four Galician entities that are part of the project will explain the work carried out to obtain quality wines through the valorization of wine by-products. In addition, we will have the participation of a guest lecture that will deepen on the challenges of fertilization of Galician vineyards. During the day we will also introduce the FERTISOS pilot project in which the Estación de Viticultura y Enología de Galicia participates.

The VIÑ@SoStible pilot project was launched in 2021 to assess the feasibility of obtaining highly sustainable quality wines based on the use of wine by-products to improve soil fertility. The project has worked with two co-products that can be valorized: wood residues from vine pruning and bagasse from oenological processes.

On the other hand, the FERTISOS pilot project was born in 2022 with the objective of designing a new sustainable organic fertilization program for rainfed and irrigated crops using different types of slurry from livestock farms.

The event will feature presentations by representatives of the four Galician entities that make up the project, led by the Viña Costeira winery and involving the Arousana Wine Cooperative, the Galician Viticulture and Oenology Station (AGACAL-EVEGA) and the University of Santiago de Compostela through the Projects and Planning group, who will explain in detail how they have carried out the work plan to achieve the proposed objectives and results.
