Zambartas Wineries applies environmentally friendly practices throughout grape and wine production as well as in its distribution methods. Constant planning and improvement enable us to employ more efficient production methods with fewer resources spent.
We respect the micro-ecosystem of the vineyards by not using synthetic pesticides to control pests and fungi. Mechanisation of the vineyards is limited so carbon emissions from agricultural practices are reduced.
Due to Cyprus’ severe water shortage we use a minimum amount of water via specialized pressure systems. The heat insulation of our winery building guarantees less consumption of energy to keep the winery cool, a necessary part of good winemaking technique.
In 2015 we installed photovoltaics on the roof our winery, and we are now using Cyprus’ ever shining sun to generate the majority of the electricity we need at the winery. Another step closer towards being a ‘green’ winery!
Considerable efforts are made to reduce the generation of waste. Rigorous and thoughtful gathering of recyclables ensure that unavoidable waste is separated and disposed of properly.
Most of our partners return our packaging materials to the winery for reuse. Some 25% of our packaging material is reused, saving dozens of trees every year. All empty glass bottles are recycled by Zambartas Wineries and we respectfully request that you please do the same as production of glass is very energy consuming.
You can rest assured that every bottle of Zambartas wine you enjoy has been produced with the conservation of our precious environment in mind.
