Green VIK

At VIK, sustainable development is another one of our fundamental pillars that comes from our concern for the environment where our wine grows. Within the measures to mitigate, recover and improve, the following are highlighted:

  • Recovery of drained waters to irrigate the entire vineyard.

  • Our negative carbon footprint is the result of the extensive forest on our land and having planted 590 trees such as quillay, peumo and litre.

  • VIK possesses incredible biodiversity where the living organisms are part of a whole with which they are constantly reciprocating, as well as with the air, water and soil that surround it.

  • Our 303 planted hectares are surrounded by almost 2000 hectares of forest.

  • We have a perfect synergy and respect between man and nature which gives us our valued holistic VIK wine.

     

  • We have a great diversity of wild animals (ducks, cormorants, swans, eagles, cougar, etc.) thanks to being geographically isolated in the interior of the VIK Valley with a lake in the middle of the vineyard.

  • The proximity of the forest to the vineyard encourages a healthy development of plants and a good balance of flora and fauna—(i.e. the spiders that are in the vineyard and predators in the forest).

  • We have our own water treatment plant, where the plants eat the bacterium, enabling us to use the water again to irrigate the vineyard.

  • VIK has four sustainably-managed sections without any chemical use which are La Cantera, Yerbas Buenas, Cerro La Higuera and Colchaguilla Alto.

  • The winery will be very efficient using free cooling, solar energy, natural insulation and geothermal energy.
