The concept of sustainability is the guiding thread throughout the history of Sorrentino Winery. Stemming from a past deeply rooted in family agricultural traditions, the company has evolved toward a production philosophy that blends a passion for winemaking and cultivation with a profound commitment to environmental sustainability and the well-being of future generations.

Sorrentino Winery is dedicated to preserving the quality of its legendary wines while simultaneously embracing sustainable agricultural practices, such as certified organic farming since 2001. This commitment extends to soil conservation and the promotion of biodiversity through the use of cover crops and mechanical weeding practices. Moreover, the company harvests rainwater and employs renewable energy sources like solar power to minimize its environmental impact.

Sustainability is at the core of every aspect of the company, from wine production to the use of biodegradable materials for packaging. This dedication reflects Sorrentino's commitment not only to the quality of its products but also to the planet's health, employee well-being, and customer trust. In short, Sorrentino is an example of how tradition and innovation can coexist to create a more sustainable future for agriculture and winemaking.

Our commitment

We don't just think in terms of the next vintages, but the next generations.

Since 1990, we've been moving towards a more sustainable approach, and our wines have been certified organic since 2001.

We are constantly committed to evolving our practices to ensure that over time, we can continue to reduce energy consumption in the vineyard and greenhouse gas emissions. With any future developments, we pledge to maintain the sustainability of our winery and, whenever possible, enhance our sustainable practices.

Sorrentino is a company dedicated to the planet's health, the well-being of our employees, and the trust of our customers.

Vineyard

In our vineyard, our goal is to cultivate the best possible grapes while protecting and strengthening the soil. We combine organic and sustainable practices, minimizing chemical intervention, preserving the vineyard and the surrounding environment, and promoting biodiversity.

We maintain soil health by planting cover crops to protect soil balance and reduce water evaporation. Additionally, we incorporate organic matter and green compost to enhance soil structure and fertility.

We employ mechanical weed control techniques to avoid herbicide use and preserve the aromatic herbs growing in the Vesuvius National Park.

Biodiversity

Over the years, we've invested in an 'insetting' program, and today, among the vineyards, we host a wide range of healthy and beautiful crops such as olives, apricots, figs, eggplants, tomatoes, and oranges, to name a few.

During summer, the land is a vibrant hub of pollinators, allowing us to have a rich production of organic honey.

Water

Collecting rainwater for greywater allows us to manage on-site sanitation, vineyard spraying, cleaning and washing our machinery, as well as irrigating our diverse flora throughout the estate more sustainably.

Although water is a fundamental part of wine production, we do not irrigate the vines. The deep and developed roots are capable of drawing moisture from the soil.

Production

We make very few chemical additions to our wines, using natural yeasts for fermentation. We've embraced lighter wine bottles, and all packaging is made from biodegradable materials. We employ conscious energy practices, utilizing solar power and high-energy-efficient equipment in the winery.
