For our company environmental sustainability is the starting point of a process that combines the interests of producers and consumers alike and focuses attention on the uniqueness of each wine as the expression of a specific production process. We are committed to maintaining the integrity of the land and protecting biodiversity. By doing this, we add value to our business and become “guardians” of the territory.
In 2006 we turned to photovoltaic panels to produce power and domestic hot water.
In 2007 came into operation the wood-fired boiler of 60 kW powered by the wood of our fields for the heating of the cellars and the rooms of Wine Resort.
In 2011, we joined V.I.V.A. SUSTAINABLE WINE – Assessment of the Impact of Viticulture on the Environment – a National Pilot Project launched by the Ministry of the Environment in collaboration with nine companies and three research centres for a sustainable “Made in Italy” wine.
The project measures the sustainability performance of the vine-wine chain, starting with a calculation of water and carbon footprints.
In 2017 along with increase of the tourism in the territory we decided to broaden our green approach in this sector too. So we provided the winery with charging stations for electic vehicles and an area reserved for Tesla, in addition to the possibility to charge electric bikes.
On February 17, 2019, Venica & Venica presented their network of agents with their first sustainability report, which only has to be submitted by large listed companies.

From 2013, the Venica Family has pursued a path of sustainability, a commitment to the protection of the environment that we describe in this video, created thanks to the “VIVA project – Sustainability in Italian viticulture”.
All Venica & Venica vineyards are managed and planned following Biodynamic Agriculture. We are yet another Italian wine company that has decided to ally with its vital soil!
Interview with Ornella and Giorgio Venica.

It is made up of a mixture of legumes and grasses… an excellent fertiliser for our vineyards.
Sustainability starts here: with our bees… in the middle of green manure among our vineyards.
