Our Commitment
to the Environment

From Nonno Tumlin, through our parents, we learned to listen to the seasons. Nonno Tumlin taught us to observe with love branches, bunches, and leaves, and to confidently await the reward for our effort. From the beginning, we have supported the land with care for its rhythms and seasons, allowing each grape to release its most intense aromas.

Organic Farming

We practice organic farming to cultivate authenticity.
1998 was a crucial year for Cantine Povero, as we decided to adopt organic farming, starting from the vineyard of Santa Lucrezia Cisterna d’Asti DOC. In 2019, we obtained organic certification for all 50 hectares of our vineyards.

No Chemicals

We live among vineyards, and we don’t want our children to breathe pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
In our soils – and therefore in our wines – there are no chemical agents. We nourish our vines with compost, manure, and cover crops like legumes, red clover, and other plants sown to protect and enrich the soil. In spring, we cut to feed the vine. An innovative weather station allows us to minimize treatments by monitoring humidity, rainfall, and temperature.

Regenerative Agriculture

We regenerate the soil, as a gift for future generations.
We practice regenerative agriculture to improve the health of the soil. A diversified and harmonic ecosystem is encouraged through the cultivation of several species like hazelnuts and einkorn, the first cereal to be cultivated by humans. A lovely pond is a home to frogs, predators of disease-carrying insects.

Solar Energy & Electric Vehicles

In 2010, we installed solar panels that provide electricity for majority of our energy requirements at the winery. This 1300-square-meter photovoltaic system has provided us with 138,010 kWh of energy every year. We have a fleet of electric cars that run off this renewable electricity and allow us to dramatically reduce our carbon emissions.

Renewable Water

The water that we use in irrigation and in the bottling line is from our own ancient family well located on our property. We extract extremely pure water from the ancient well which is located 150 meters underground and use this as a source of water for all production needs. We have also installed two different methods for reducing our water use. In 2016, we installed a biomass wastewater treatment plant which uses fermentation of bacteria to purify wastewater. This allows us to reuse water to irrigate green areas. Our second reduction of water use is through an alternating double-line microfiltration system at our bottling line, which reduces the water consumption by 50%.
