Creating wines in harmony and respect with the environment, through sustainable care of resources and ecosystems, is the philosophy behind our wines.

An attitude of respect for the environment, with thoughts and actions, but also the conviction that natural resources must be protected and used rationally for the benefit of the present and the future, are what is known as environmental awareness.

For Gran Reserva, it is also a philosophy related to the conservation and improvement of the environment through the sustainable care of resources and ecosystems, when it comes to making wine. On Earth Day, which is celebrated this April 22, we tell you more about Gran Reserva’s sustainable practices that go from soil to table. And that respect nature as the best source of quality for their delicious and refreshing wines.

We take care of the water

Due to its commitment to responsible and efficient water consumption, Gran Reserva applies various initiatives throughout its entire operation. In the vineyards, for example, water efficiency is of great importance and for this reason, 100% of the vineyards are irrigated by the drip irrigation system, operating under the “Zero Water Waste” concept.

Also, since 2010, they have measured their ecological water footprint using the Water Footprint Network (WFN) methodology. Thanks to this initiative, it was possible to prove and verify that in 2022 the footprint of the Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, Gran Reserva Carmenère, Gran Reserva Malbec and Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon wines was 40% lower than the average of the global wine industry. 

We supply ourselves with 100% renewable energy

Aligned with the objective of making wines with clean, renewable energy and with the least impact on the environment, Gran Reserva is certified by the main independent program for the verification and certification of renewable energy, Green-e. In turn, all the grapes that give rise to Gran Reserva wines are produced with 100% renewable energy, which demonstrates its commitment to reducing CO2 emissions to zero.

We recycle, reuse and/or compost our waste

Although grape pomace is the largest waste behind wine production, in Gran Reserva it is used as a base for the enrichment of soils through solarization. They also promote circular innovation through upcycling, such as disused drip irrigation hoses being transformed into Barrier Balls (a floating cover for their water tanks that reduces evaporation), as well as alliances with local entrepreneurs such as Surco Diseño ( Regarding glass, 35% used in bottles corresponds to recycled glass.

We measure our carbon footprint

Since 2007, Gran Reserva has measured its carbon footprint using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) methodology, and since 2017 it has managed to reduce its footprint by 34%.

We preserve our forests

And finally, we need to highlight its 4,272 hectares of native forest certified under the FSC® standard, which function as natural carbon capturers, mitigating climate change. At the same time, these forests are home to more than 400 species of flora and more than 100 species of fauna.

We invite you to uncork some of the Gran Reserva wines on Earth Day, now knowing that these wines seek and actively work to preserve Earth.
