Regenerative viticulture

A form of management in agriculture (regenerative agriculture) or viticulture (regenerative viticulture) with the aim of maintaining or improving the health and diversity of the ecosystem through sustainable and environmentally friendly practices or regenerating it. In ecology, regeneration (lat. regeneratio = new creation, regenerare = to create again) refers to the ability of ecosystems to reverse a negative change caused by disturbance. "The Regenerative Viticulture Foundation is a global, non-profit organisation made up of wine producers, scientists, educators, agricultural consultants and environmental organisations.

Regenerativer Weinbau - Logos

Through biologically/ecologically orientated cultivation methods, the ecosystem is brought into a natural state of health and harmony through cooperation with nature. This promotes biodiversity (variety of species) and enables the avoidance of pesticides and GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in soil and water. Regenerative methods have the potential to reverse climate change by sequestering carbon in the soil and removing it from the atmosphere. There is great consistency with the principles and methods of organic viticulture.
