Trexenta Sustainability

During the production of its’ excellent wines, Cantina Trexenta privileges the development of eco-sustainably within the cellar’s territory. Since 1956, the awareness of the importance of developing an economic-environmental balance to ensure success has grown to accompany today’s demands. For this reason, Cantina Trexenta is committed to the efficient management of natural resources and the territory in order to protect the future of its estate.

Maintaining the Ecosystem

Trexenta is a territory predominated by hills, with favorable weather conditions, and abundance of water that has always determined a rich and prestigious production of wine, olive oil and wheat.

The vinyards’ ecosystem coexists well with the other varieties of the habitat and the strategic position of the various vineyards offers benefits that nature provides freely. Indeed, thanks to the penance of the slopes, the vineyards receive a greater amount of solar energy and also benefit from better overall water control of the groundwater-soil, important for the health of the plant.

Cantina Trexenta is an environmentally friendly company, sensitive to the importance of the ecosystem and reflected in the maintance of the landscape in balance with the different species and natural structures of its territory. The Winery assists in the preservation of the endemic flora and fauna to encourage reduction of treatments thus protecting fertility of the soil and reducing the impact of the greenhouse effect.

Aid in preserving specie diversity

One of the many species found in the territory are birds and mainly, those who have adapted to feeding on crop weeds. The most characteristic is the Sardinian partridge that feeds on grains and berries. Another common bird of the area is a typical inhabitant of grasslands and wheat fields, the Quail; which, thanks to its migration trend does not run the same risk of extinction of the Sardinian partridge. Turtle Doves also nest in the surrounding areas of crops and vineyards and may be found in the hills of Trexenta.

Another characteristic species is the hooded crow as well as the bee-eaters coming from Africa in the spring and migrating to the South in August-September. Among the the few birds of prey are buzzards, kestrels, and some lesser kestrel. Finally, in addition to the sparrow and the reversal Sardinian black, also numerous in the towns, there are many other small passerines like the lark, the grille, the lark, the bunting, the linnet, the hoopoe, the Woodchat Shrike, the Stonechat , the occhiotto. Endemic to Sardinia and Corsica is the Sardinian warbler.

Among the reptiles are: geckos, lizards, Sardinian lizards as well as Sardinian snakes, Montpellier snakes and water snakes.

Among mammals, the most common species are: fox, weasels, Sardinian hare although not very abundant and the wild rabbit. Little known to most Sardinians due to the nature of their private life or night-time habits are some animal species which are; however, very familiar to farmers due to the damage they cause among the crops. These are rodents including: the Norwegian rat, the brown rat, house mice, field mice, wild mice, and hedgehogs. Among Insectivores are various Shrews, Dormouse and the Garnen dormouse, which are threatened with extinction due to the degradation of the natural environments. Also present are bats, who are generally considered to be beneficial in the fight against mosquitoes and flies.

Vinyard architectures

In the rural areas among the vineyards are constructed elements representing the wealth of the territory. Elements of unique character and distinction that connect the cultivated and nature areas and spaces which improve the quality of the environment.

A highlight among the major improvements is the use of material for greater sustainability, which include the replacement of outdated or damaged plant material and replacement of inert materials such as live windbreaking elements of native or vegetal origin such such as cane stalks.

Another important measure to improve the vineyards was the adoption of a regular pruning plan which serves to improve both the visual quality that functional plant.
