What surrounds us is natural We have been committed to working sustainably, respecting the environment as much as we can in the crafting of our wines, both in the vineyards and the winery. keyboard_arrow_downOUR COMMITMENT
Celler Batlle is committed to respecting the countryside and using renewable energies
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE ENERGIES The winery was built in 2002 using a bioclimatic architecture to reduce its environmental impact and energy consumption. It has obtained the ISO 14001 (environmental management standard) and 9001 (quality management system standard) international certifications.
In 2001 we received the European Award for Sustainable Architecture
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE ENERGIES 100% renewable electrical power throughout the winery 41%
SAVING IN THERMAL ENERGY
COMMITMENT TO CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION
REDUCTION IN CO2 EMISSIONS IN THE LAST YEAR
Wineries for Climate Protection is a Spanish certification that endorses continuous improvement in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, correct water management, waste reduction, energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies. Also it increases the scope towards the areas of governance and the social and economic dimensions. Gramona has held it since 2018. Environmental Statement Quality policy EUROPEAN REGISTRATION EMAS Eco-Management and Audit Scheme is an environmental management system available to any organisation that intends to assume environmental and economic responsibility, improve its environmental performance and declare publicly its annual environmental results by setting an example of good practice. Gramona was the first Spanish winery to achieve this and we continue to renew it year after year.

We vitalize our soils following the precepts of biodynamic growing COMMITMENT TO THE LAND
play_circle_outlineIn our vineyards, we use only biodynamic preparation based on animal and vegetal compost and medicinal plants from our own garden – nettle, dandelion, yarrow, chamomile, valerian -. We thereby protect the biological activity in the soil and the biodiversity of the local area avoiding the use of synthetic chemical compounds.
Through this type of agriculture, we achieve a balanced and living countryside, which in turn will influence the quality of the grapes, making them more expressive. Descobreix com ho fem
We seek to preserve the natural balance of the native flora and fauna COMMITMENT TO BIODIVERSITY
play_circle_outlineWe have our own farm in the middle of our vineyards which is home to horses, cows, sheep, hens, falcons, geese, donkeys and peacocks. Its function is to close the biodynamic circle as it allows us to obtain the ingredients necessary for the creation of our preparations and compost. Find out how we are doing it
COMMITMENT TO BIODIVERSITY
We plough our
22 hectares by horse
Altaïr, Divine and Corsaire are the names of our horses, our workmates in the vineyards.
The horse allows us to plough the soil without compacting it, as a tractor would, helping the drainage of water as well as the proliferation of the vine’s roots and their ability to reach the bedrock. But perhaps the most important thing about working with a horse is the fact that it obliges the winegrower to get closer to the land, to feel it, to smell it and to observe it. Being out and walking through the vines enables the winegrower to be attentive to what is happening to them in real time.

COMMITMENT TO BIODIVERSITY
Altair, Divine i Corsaire són els nostres cavalls i companys de feina a la vinya.
El cavall permet llaurar la terra sense compactar-la com ho faria un tractor, afavorint el drenatge de l’aigua, la proliferació de les arreles i la seva capacitat d’arribar fins a la roca mare. Però potser el més important és el fet que ens obliga a aproximar-nos a la terra, sentint-la, olent-la, observant-la. El fet de trepitjar-la ens permet estar atents en tot moment a tot el que hi passa.

COMMITMENT TO THE LOCAL AREA
If you seeking to make a real change you need alliances. This group of winegrowers, set up by Gramona in 2015, respects an environmentally-friendly work code. Its total of 450 hectares constitutes one of the largest surface areas of biodynamic vineyards in the Penedés region. We work, learn and share our experience in the vineyards in an ongoing and collaborative process.

COMMITMENT TO WATER We take advantage of rainwater to reduce water consumption
We strive to save water through working efficiently and making reasonable use of it in our day-to-day operations. We treat all of our wastewater.
We use a pond to collect rainwater which we reuse for the irrigation of gardens, in turn, attracts birds, thus encouraging greater biodiversity.
Compostable cellophane of 100% vegetal origin COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING
play_circle_outlineThe packaging of our bottles is produced using a craft process from the early 20th century and recognised as a compostable material by the Catalan Waste Agency.
Our commitment to sustainability is also reflected in the rest of our wines’ packaging that we are gradually replacing with biodegradable materials. Find out how we are doing it
