Description of the project

LIFE + Atlantic Vineyards is an environmental project designed to prove the need and viability of a sustainable wine production in the vineyards of the Designation of Origin Rías Baixas. The aim is to reduce the use of chemicals in a region with an Atlantic, temperate and humid climate, which favours the attack of fungus such as mildew, oidium and botytris.

The innovative feature of the project lies in the implication of all winegrowers of the region of interest in order to reduce the use of phytosanitary products, using different techniques and actions coordinated within an environmental management system. This system will be tested in the most prestigious vineyards of the Designation of Origin Rías Baixas.

The LIFE + Atlantic Vineyards project is supported by the LIFFE + programme: Environment Policy and Governance.
