Doing what you believe in and spreading faith in the sustainability of organic viticulture is not a type of agriculture that represents a return to the past; it is innovation that combines today’s technology with the experience of the winegrower who wants to preserve and not exploit the land, using natural – not chemical – products, thereby preserving the flavours and typical characteristics of the product. The healthiness of the wine in the glass is guaranteed by means of traceability along the supply chain and the absence of chemical residues that are, in fact, banned in this type of viticulture.
The tipical varietal that determine the character and the specificities of the product in the glass. The question of ethics is fundamental, and is guaranteed by the achievement of SA8000:2008 certification with respect to all the Company’s stakeholders, from suppliers to distributors, who receive the guarantee of a reliable and constant service, with full protection of workers’ rights.
The functions of logistics and administration are carried out in Verona, the wines are produced by
certified ‘organic’ winemakers, in compliance with the institutional parameters promoted by the relevant
authorities and fostered by Mont’Albano which, in the various regions, carries out surveillance with regard to legal standards as well as checking that producers comply with principles that Mont’Albano has constantly
promoted over the past 30 years.
The parent company of the project, Mont’Albano Agricola, is still operational in Friuli, where it crafts
a range of niche wines that represent the company’s flagship products.
Why does certification exist?
To give further assurance to the consumer who cannot know the nature of the wine-producer’s operational standards at close quarters.
Having certification must constitute a form of recognition, a seal of approval to be placed proudly on the producer’s products. Often as not, certification is seen purely as a bureaucratic process, while for us at Mont’Albano, this view is mistaken, a commonplace that tends to confuse the complexity of the procedures with the importance of the recognition.
Obtaining certification is certainly an arduous process not devoid of obstacles and technical complexity, but the ability to provide guarantees to the customer – and first and foremost to ourselves – that the route we have taken is the right one fully compensates for the effort incurred.
Our company chose to seek certification for purposes of clarity, transparency and the innate sense of ethics that guides us in our work.
