VILLA SANDI FOR LIFE
A task for a healthy future for our Earth
Villa Sandi has always cared for environment and earth health, paying attention to the respect for nature, from the vineyards to the store shelf.
Hydroelectric Power Plant
Some of the electricity that Villa Sandi consumes has always been produced by a hydroelectric power plant located inside the company grounds. It is a hydroelectric plant with an asynchronous motor and variable blade pitch mechanism, which operates with water taken from the Brentella canal. This ensures that the power remains the same even when the rate of flow of the water in the canal increases or decreases.
The water in the canal that crosses right through the company grounds is regulated by the Consorzio di Bonifica del Canale Brentella
(Land Reclamation Consortium of the Brentella Canal) and is also used to irrigate the surrounding vineyards, cool the outside of tanks and autoclaves and ensure the most favourable level of humidity in the underground cellars where the classic method sparkling wines are left to age.
Another step in the company environment friendly project are the solar panels which have been functioning
since 2012 summer. Together with the hydro-electrical site, they provide 40% of the company energy requirement.
Close cooperation with Padua University
Villa Sandi has been joining close partnership with Padua University for Research concerning enviromental projects and both recyclable and innovative raw materials. The close cooperation with the Experimental Viniculture Institute of Conegliano (University of Padua) has allowed Villa Sandi to monitor attentively all the phases in grape growing.
