Green practices for the environmental protection… and the quality of wine
The agricultural practices adopted by Masùt da Rive are deeply orientated to sustainability, with a focus on agricultural ethics.
In Masùt da Rive vineyards, the only weed control technique used, is the mechanical under-vine weeding (without glyphosate). This method is important to reduce the competition between weeds and vines, in sourcing water and nutrients from the soil. (link rincalzatura)
Close to the flowering season, the agricultural practices get more intense, first by managing the excessive vegetation, cutting the upper part of the plant (cimatura) (link cimatura), then by cleaning the vines: OLMI, a pulsed-air leaf remover, perfectly cleans the cluster from parasites and floreal residues…These are “Green” choices, which are translated into quality of grapes and integrity in the glass.

As far as energy is concerned, we rely on the renewable energy par excellence, the sun: our photovoltaic plant delivers clean kilowatts and covers all of our energy needs. And the winemakers of Masùt da Rive hate wasting water: our sub irrigation system optimizes the water supply while minimizing dispersion caused by evaporation.
