For a better world, a fairer society and a reinvented viticulture.
Vines give life
Even though tastes for wine are divided, wine lovers, enthusiasts and wine producers all agree that nature is holy.
A vineyard is not just a patch of land, it is part of the identity, culture and heritage of a family, a region and often even a country.
The disappearance of a vineyard is not part of a natural cycle, it is the disappearance of a piece of the tradition and history of a family, a winery, a community, or even a country.
This is why one of the pillars of the Dis&Dis project has been sustainability and the choice of our partners has been and will always be based on this.
At 3 years old, we can proudly say that all the wineries in our catalogue either already practice 100% sustainable agriculture or have adopted farming practices that are healthy for the environment, the communities around them and the end customer.
From how water is consumed in irrigation, to how harvesting takes place, to how thick the wine bottle is, to how connected the winery is to the local community, all weigh into our decision to add a new wine to the online catalogue.
All wineries in our catalogue have optimised wine-making processes, use renewable energy, use their own residues as fertiliser, protect local fauna and flora and are actively involved in the economic and cultural development of local communities.
Between all these wineries in different corners of the world and Romania we wanted to bridge the gap without wasting resources on a long retail chain. That's why we buy products directly from the source.
This way we optimise carbon emissions and the final prices of our products. You enjoy free transport, the wineries better prices, nature clean air.
From Champagne to Terra Remota, good wines deserve the same pedestal. We give equal opportunities to small or young wineries, who bet on new winemaking methods and thus discover bottled gems hidden in regions not yet known to the general public.
Romania, our home
But because Romania is our home, and Romanian wines are next on our list, we want to do our bit to preserve the forests, flora and fauna of our mountains.
Without forest there is no balance, without balance we have no vineyards.
This year we have decided to join Carpathia by donating 1% of our total sales starting 01.01.2023.
Our friends at Carpathia have managed to save from exploitation over 25,400 hectares of alpine forests and pastures in the south-eastern Carpathian Mountains, initiated ecological reconstruction works and established strict protection measures, planted over 2.9 million seedlings, created 9 nurseries, created a 65,000 ha no-hunting zone for trophies.
They are continually working on an active collaborative relationship with the 28 municipalities surrounding the park and are involved in the tourism and economic development of the region.
We are joining their efforts in 2023 and will be actively involved in all their endeavours in Romania.
Also for this year we aim to reduce our carbon footprint by optimising our logistics system and changing our packaging to 100% environmentally friendly recyclable materials.
We will continue to invest in the stability, mental and economic well-being of our employees. And we will continue to choose to work only with those partners who respect the rights of their employees.
Social sustainability is as important as environmental sustainability and profit at any cost has never been our goal.
