Doña Paula gains sustainability certification

Published:  10 April, 2019

Santa Rita producer Doña Paula has been certified as a sustainable winery.

To achieve the accreditation, the winery has passed the audit on the Bodegas de Argentina Sustainability Protocol in its 3.0 version, certifying it as a sustainably managed producer.

The achievement, said the producer, followed work carried out in the past three years in different areas of the company, which owns more than 760hc in the premium areas of Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valleys within the Mendoza region.

“The certification also represents a challenge that drives all the Doña Paula team to improve our social and environmental performance throughout the winemaking process, minimizing the impact of our operations on the environment and generating shared value with our workers, their families and the communities,” said Ana Paula Minatel, sustainability coordinator for Doña Paula.

The protocol was established in 2011 and in June 2018, it launched its 3.0 version.

It was introduced in response to the need for a standard of sustainable practices adequate to Argentina’s characteristics, aligning the industry in order to address the environmental, social and economic challenges that are specific to wine.

To date, only 10 Argentinean wineries have been certified.
