The Environment

Preserving our environment

The production of wines and alcoholic beverages relies heavily on the growing region’s climate. Environmental processes and resources such as the soil, climate, water and energy form the basis of our products.

Clearly, from farm to consumer, Distell is wholly dependent on the long-term health of the environment. Specifically, changes in climate and the quality and supply of water have a major impact on our operations. We recognise these changes are at least partly a result of industrial activity from the burning of fossil fuels to the negative effects of emissions, effluent and waste.

“Distell is acutely aware of the impact the rising cost of energy has on its business.”

We are continually improving our production processes for optimal cost-efficiency. A major component of this includes improving the energy efficiency of our production processes and substituting fossil fuel with renewable energy solutions where possible.
