CONO SUR RELAUNCHES ITS ORGANIC RANGE, ALONG WITH ITS NEW PACKAGING
Cono Sur Winery will be relaunching the Cono Sur Organic range 2009, comprising four varieties of wines made from organically grown grapes, and presenting an even more natural touch on its label, together with screwcap seal on the white varieties.
By the end of this year, the 2009 vintage of Cono Sur wines made from organically grown grapes will be found on the shelves, introducing a renewed packaging, which not only has a more natural and refreshing look, but it is also environmentally friendly, as the label has been made with post-consumer recycled paper (material discarded after consumer use).
The Cono Sur Organic range comprises a total of four wines: from San Antonio Valley – an origin whose closeness to the Pacific Ocean, cold breezes and clayish soils are perfect for white varieties – a Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, both in screwcap seal, and from Colchagua Valley – where benign weather with warm temperatures and foggy mornings produce gorgeous and fruity wines – a Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenere.
Cono Sur’s Organic range carries the spirit of its workers, who pedal their way to and from the Cono Sur vineyards every day and whose effort is the essential thrust behind the wines.
An organic wine must come from vineyards certifiably farmed without the aid of any chemical or synthetic products. Fertilization as well as prevention and control of possible pests or diseases are tackled only with natural techniques and resources such as flowers, grass, geese and the introduction of beneficial insects. Cono Sur is certified organic by BCS Oeko Garantie GMBH Germany.
Today the company cultivates 300 hectares of organically grown grapes, and according to its philosophy of protecting the environment and causing minimum impact to the surrounding ecological system, the aim is to continue increasing the amount of plantations under organic management.
