Since 1982 the Tenuta San Vito has cultivated its crops according to organic principles, producing wines and olive oil without any use of weed-killers, pesticides or synthetic chemical treatments. Since 1985 all our products have been certified by the AIAB (Associazione Italiana Agricoltura Biologica) and our wine estate is a member of IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements). The current certifying authority is ICEA (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica ed Ambientale), which ensures observance of the E.U. 2092/91 regulation and international norms, in particular the NOP (National Organic Program) of the US.USDA.
Method of cultivation
The Tenuta San Vito’s adherence to organic farming means that it uses only substances derived from organic minerals, both for fertilisers and pesticides. This farming system strives to enhance soil fertility and biological diversity, allowing the soil to maintain its productive capacity without leaving any chemical residues in it or (and) in our products.
