Lockdown, short chain, km0 and home wine delivery

The COVID emergency is changing the habits of Italians (as well as those of the majority of people from all over the world) not least those related to food/beverage supply and to the use of essential goods.

The spread of SARS-CoV-2 has changed balances and scheduled routines of any market sector, especially of the agri-food sector, which is the only effectively inalienable one (together with the pharmaceutical one). The slowdown in the movement of goods within the EU has led to delays in the supply of shops. On one hand the close of hotels, bars, restaurants (more generally the HORECA sector) has brought operators, workers and suppliers to their knees. On the other hand, fear of contracting COVID by frequenting crowded places has led people to find as much ways as possible to obtain supplies using shopping online and home deliveries (for example home wine delivery in Rome).

ORGANIC VITICULTURE CAN ASPIRE TO COMPLETELY ABATE CLIMATE-ALTERING EMISSIONS CONNECTED WITH WINEMAKING PROCESSES

On a global scale, the agricultural sector is considered one of the main producers of the greenhouse gases (about 23% of total emissions, taking into account agricultural production as well as deforestation and other land use change) which are responsible – as widely confirmed  by the world scientific community – for global warming and the so-called “Climate change”.

Specifically, is intensive agriculture that has a major impact on the environment with its broad use of chemicals (causing soil degradation, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, water and air pollution and so on) with higher levels of greenhouse gases emissions in the atmosphere.

Nowadays FIVI counts with more than 1300 members throughout the national territory (3% of the approximately 42,000 Italian wine producers). Joining the FIVI involves the fulfilment of a series of important and essential requirements. A company registered with FIVI is a partnership with a legal representative, which in the case of Trebotti is Ludovico, who is also the FIVI Lazio delegate for Tuscia. The independent winemaker must follow every step of production (from vineyard to marketing, passing through processing, wine tasting, and all the various bureaucratic and administrative aspects).

Nowadays FIVI counts with more than 1300 members throughout the national territory (3% of the approximately 42,000 Italian wine producers). Joining the FIVI involves the fulfilment of a series of important and essential requirements. A company registered with FIVI is a partnership with a legal representative, which in the case of Trebotti is Ludovico, who is also the FIVI Lazio delegate for Tuscia. The independent winemaker must follow every step of production (from vineyard to marketing, passing through processing, wine tasting, and all the various bureaucratic and administrative aspects).

Producing an independent wine means processing only their own grapes and selling only their own artisanal wines (in the case of Trebotti organic farm there are also organic wines, volcanic wines and wines with no added sulphites), thus renouncing to purchase grapes and/or wine from external sources, if not in case of extreme necessity (for example natural disasters that could compromise the farm own existence). FIVI winegrowers are usually small winegrowers. They try to minimise as much as possible the use of additives with the goal of producing sustainable wine, and concentrate all their energy on the production of healthy grapes (the latter being the core of Trebotti’s mission. For 15 years Trebotti has been producing Lazio wines and represents the best of today’s organic and sustainable wines in the region).

These aspects, together with many others, all aim to increase as much as possible the transparency in the relationship between winemakers and consumers. The producers, first and foremost organic winemakers, get directly involved and work in a system of information symmetry between the company and the final consumer.

ico vignaioli indipendentiFIVI organises various events in order to bring consumers closer to this world. The main one is the “FIVI Independent Winegrowers Wine market” held in Piacenza. In 2019 Trebotti organic farm actively contributed to the creation of the first event for Lazio winegrowers, making their wines known to the Roman public. Trebotti is an organic farm from Lazio that integrates the values of independent winegrowers into their daily choices, thanks to its FIVI wines from Tuscia. This is certified by the FIVI logo inserted on the bottles in compliance with the requirements set for all members of the big FIVI independent winegrowers community since 2019.
