--ORGANIC CAVAS--NATURE AND BRUT
HIGH QUALITY ORGANIC PRODUCTS
The Red Organic Wine LhEBLAN has obtained the "Estrella de Bronce" award at the First National Organic Farming Contest celebrated at Lizarra (Estella).
More than 50 cellars participated at the contest and more than 170 products had been presented. All the products had a high quality level and had been tasted by the most prestigious sommeliers.
Why do we use organic winemaking?
The Cellars of A.Vilamajó, has been admitted by the Organic Production Council from the Ministry of Agriculture of the Catalan Government due to our optimal conditions to elaborate organic wine and cava, with European Certification.
So we present the new organic winemaking products named LhEBLAN, with organic european certification. We use organic farming grapes and we elaborate them using our traditional and natural methods of elaboration.
What is an organic wine?
The organic wine is a natural product elaborated to obtain a high quality wine with full respect to the environment. That's why chemical products that could harm the soil are not used in the organic vineyards farming.
The Organic Regulation limit the use of sulphites (used to avoid wine contamination or oxidation) on the elaboration cellar, that's why we work at our cellar with the highest standards of cleanliness.
Why organic products?
All our products (either the certificated and not certificated) are elaborated with the same natural and traditional method, and are obtained from high quality grapes, so the moderate consume of our wines and cavas improve the health and the vitality.
Furthermore, consume organic products make us feel "connected" with the natural environment because the organic farming takes care on earth and grow us up to a better world.
Are sustainable with environment?
The respecto to environment is one of the principles of ecological products; when we consume foods from organic agriculture we collaborate in the conservation of environment and avoid the soil, water and air contamination.
Ecological agriculture is the most respectful with the fauna, the one that generates lower contamination of aerosols, produces less carbon dioxide, prevents the greenhouse effect, does not generate contaminating waste sing and aid to the power saving, since in the agriculture and the elaboration of products the renewable resources are used to the maximum.
It is important to emphasize that the diminution of the biological diversity is one of the main environmental problems of the present time; organic agriculture preserves the seeds for the future, preventing by this way, the disappearance of some varieties of great nutritious and cultural value.
Have these products the maximum quality levels?
The ecological foods come from the ecological agriculture, that uses a production system of the maximum reliability since it is controlled from the field to the table by the European Regulation 2092/91. All the agents who take part in the agro-alimentary chain are subject to the control and inspection of the used materials, the process of elaboration, the packaging, the labels, etc. by the credited control and certification companies; the CCPAE in our case.
Is respectful with the nature in general?
Ecological agriculture fertilizes the soil and restrains the desertification. It favors the retention of the water and it does not contaminate the aquifers. It foments the biodiversity. It maintains the habitats of the wild animals, allowing and favoring the life of diverse species. It respects the natural cycles of the cultures, avoiding the degradation and contamination of the ecosystems. It favors the ecological balance through different practices: rotations, associations, green fertilizers, etc. It favors the soil natural fertility and the productive capacity of the agrarian system. It recycles the nutrients adding them back to soil by organic fertilizers, and uses on an optimal way the natural resources. In summary, it respects the nature balance contributing to the preservation of the ecosystem and the sustainable rural development.
Are allowed genetically modified organisms?
In ecological agriculture the genetically modified organisms (GMO) are not authorized. The GMO culture can have negative consequences for environment and there are not enough investigations on the long term consequences of transgenic culture; at the moment scientific results do not exist to demonstrate that the GMO culture and transgenics foods are inoffensive for environment and the human health, and it is not known if the ingestion of plants genetically modified supposes a direct danger for the health, although is indications that they show an influence in the metabolism.
Therefore no of our products (certified of ecological agriculture or conventional agriculture) is elaborated with the intervention of genetically modified organisms.
Agriculture with genetically modified organisms leads towards the genetic uniformity and with it towards a genetic erosion, which means a lost of varieties, with great extensions of the same kind of culture. Ecological agriculture wants to conserve and to impel the genetic variety of the species and types, and with it the wealth of the culture landscapes.
