We are very proud to inform you San Marco is the first farm-ever in Latium, Italy and among the first and very few companies in Italy to have measured the Carbon Footprint, ie the quantity of emissions of CO2 released into the atmosphere during the production cycle of a 75cl bottle of Frascati Doc.
This thanks to the so-called “San Marco Carbon Footprint” project, co-financed by the Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea. The carbon footprint measures the quantity of CO2-e ( ie. CO2 equivalent) emitted from any single unit, ie from each single bottle of wine by 0.75 liter, produced by our winery.
Overall, any bottle of San Marco Frascati Doc white releases into the atmosphere 1,220 kg CO2-e. This figure covers the year 2011 and it was certified by the IMQ, the Italian Institute for Quality Brand, a body of certification for the Carbon Footprint well-known at International level.
The San Marco Carbon Footprint project, in co-operation with the technicians from the Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea, which financed a part of this project and we really thank for this, ranks us in the forefront among the Italian farms and next to the major world standards – As a winery, we are really happy for this as for the first time in the all history of Frascati Doc wine its carbon footprint was detected… ⇒READ MORE
