The Funaro winery production facility is small but avant-garde: the vinification area is equipped with cutting edge technology and a modern bottling line guarantees maximum care during product packaging.
Two sides of the wine cellar are buried underground, in order to ensure the optimal microclimate needed for the ageing of wine, in oak and acacia barrels, and sparkling wine (traditional method). Thanks to a modern thermo-conditioning system and an external “thermal cladding”, in conjunction with an integrated photovoltaic system and a solar heating system enable significant energy saving and thus contribute to safeguarding the environment. We utilize a sustainable “Active herbal purification process®” in our winery, whereby waste waters produced during the production process are purified naturally by means of an integrated system composed of volcanic rock and mycorrhized common reeds, which means that the purified water may then be used for crop irrigation.
