What surrounds us is natural
We have been committed to working sustainably, respecting the environment as much as we can in the crafting of our wines, both in the vineyards and the winery.

Celler Batlle is committed to respecting the countryside and using renewable energies COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE ENERGIES
The winery was built in 2002 using a bioclimatic architecture to reduce its environmental impact and energy consumption. It has obtained the ISO 14001 (environmental management standard) and 9001 (quality management system standard) international certifications.
In 2001 we received the European Award for Sustainable Architecture

We vitalize our soils following the precepts of biodynamic growing
COMMITMENT TO THE LAND play_circle_outline In our vineyards, we use only biodynamic preparation based on animal and vegetal compost and medicinal plants from our own garden – nettle, dandelion, yarrow, chamomile, valerian -. We thereby protect the biological activity in the soil and the biodiversity of the local area avoiding the use of synthetic chemical compounds.
Through this type of agriculture, we achieve a balanced and living countryside, which in turn will influence the quality of the grapes, making them more expressive.

We seek to preserve the natural balance of the native flora and fauna
COMMITMENT TO BIODIVERSITY play_circle_outline We have our own farm in the middle of our vineyards which is home to horses, cows, sheep, hens, falcons, geese, donkeys and peacocks. Its function is to close the biodynamic circle as it allows us to obtain the ingredients necessary for the creation of our preparations and compost.

COMMITMENT TO BIODIVERSITY We plough our 22 hectares by horse Altaïr, Divine and Corsaire are the names of our horses, our workmates in the vineyards.
The horse allows us to plough the soil without compacting it, as a tractor would, helping the drainage of water as well as the proliferation of the vine’s roots and their ability to reach the bedrock. But perhaps the most important thing about working with a horse is the fact that it obliges the winegrower to get closer to the land, to feel it, to smell it and to observe it. Being out and walking through the vines enables the winegrower to be attentive to what is happening to them in real time.

We plough our 22 hectares by horse COMMITMENT TO BIODIVERSITY Altair, Divine i Corsaire són els nostres cavalls i companys de feina a la vinya.
El cavall permet llaurar la terra sense compactar-la com ho faria un tractor, afavorint el drenatge de l’aigua, la proliferació de les arreles i la seva capacitat d’arribar fins a la roca mare. Però potser el més important és el fet que ens obliga a aproximar-nos a la terra, sentint-la, olent-la, observant-la. El fet de trepitjar-la ens permet estar atents en tot moment a tot el que hi passa.

Aliances per la Terra

COMMITMENT TO THE LOCAL AREA

play_circle_outline

If you seeking to make a real change you need alliances. This group of 12 winegrowers, set up by Gramona in 2015, respects an environmentally-friendly work code. Its total of 303 hectares constitutes one of the largest surface areas of biodynamic vineyards in the Penedés region. We work, learn and share our experience in the vineyards in an ongoing and collaborative process.

COMMITMENT TO WATER
We take advantage of rainwater to reduce water consumption We strive to save water through working efficiently and making reasonable use of it in our day-to-day operations. We treat all of our wastewater.
We built a pond to collect rainwater which we reuse for the irrigation of gardens, in turn, attracts birds, thus encouraging greater biodiversity.

Compostable cellophane of 100% vegetal origin
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING play_circle_outline Produced using a craft process from the early 20th century and recognised as a compostable material by the Catalan Waste Agency.
Our commitment to sustainability is also reflected in the rest of our wines’ packaging that we are gradually replacing with biodegradable materials.
