Team Grace Vineyard
Focusing on soil health, avoiding the use of chemical synthetic fertilizers,
minimizing soil disturbance as much as possible, applying organic fertilizers,
enhancing the microbial activity in the soil rhizosphere environment,
and better expressing the unique terroir characteristics.
2. Organic Fertilizer
Using environmentally friendly raw materials to self-compose organic fertilizers,
well-rotted organic fertilizers can better adjust soil structure and enhance the activity of nutrients in the soil.
Over the past decade, we have progressively reduced the use of sulfur dioxide,
streamlined the brewing procedures, and increased the proportion of wild yeast fermentation each year.
4. Water Conservation
The area around Grace Vineyard has excellent soil water retention properties.
The vineyard for over a decade can practically be grown without irrigation,
minimizing the utilization of water resources.
Water consumption of the Group is mainly sourced from local water suppliers and underground wells.
We did not encounter problem in water sourcing during the Reporting Period.
We acknowledge the importance of saving scarce water resources
and have set up a target to remain the intensity of water consumption at a low level.
We encourage our employees to save water resources during daily operations.
Frequent inspection on water consumption equipment is conducted to avoid water leakage.
If any problem on those equipment are identified, we will arrange repair on a timely basis.
5. Green Wine Production
We put great emphasis on managing our impact imposed on the environment brought by waste emissions.
We are devoted to monitoring such emissions and adopt appropriate measures to better manage and reduce these emissions,
aiming to minimize our impact on the environment and natural resources.
The measures we adopt include:
• Conduct dust removal process for air emissions from boilers
• Install electrostatic fume treatment system to treat kitchen exhaust before discharge
• Use natural gas boilers instead of coal boilers to reduce GHG emissions
• Use low-sulphur boiler to reduce air emissions
• Plant more trees during the Reporting Period to absorb GHG emissions
• Plant in the surroundings of the vineyards to absorb odor generated from wastewater
treatment facilities such as H2S and NH3
• Build wastewater treatment facilities with filtration, anaerobic, aerobic and
sedimentation processes in vineyards to treat wastewater before discharge
• Use treated wastewater for irrigation
• Upcycle stems, seeds, skins and other solid residual wastes from grapes to organic
fertilizers used for grape plantation
• Prefer the use of low-noise equipment
• Adopt noise elimination and shock absorption measures to reduce noise
