ADVID/CoLAB VINES&WINES is involved in an innovative project to reduce the use of copper in vineyards – COPPEREPLACE.
This is an international initiative approved and funded by the Interreg Sudoe Programme, which aims to offer integrated, innovative, and viable solutions to reduce the use of copper while promoting environmentally sustainable production.

The SustainWine project aims to develop a training and environmental education program adapted to different audiences. Its purpose is to promote and publicize the best that is already being done in viticultural ecosystems, regarding the conservation and protection of biodiversity.
For the next few weeks, different informative and didactic contents will be published, focused on the dissemination of good practices that have already been adopted by many wine producers, as well as their importance as an identity value of our territory.
Are you sure that the wine you have bought is authentic? This is probably one of the questions that today’s consumers are concerned about when they buy a bottle of expensive and high-quality wine. Blockchain technology has the potential to overcome important barriers faced in implementing wine provenance and traceability schemes.
Modern viticulture faces several challenges, with climate change being probably the biggest of all, especially in southern Europe and the Mediterranean.
To bring to the fore the efforts of wine producers in promoting more sustainable operations, CoLAB VINES&WINES will publish weekly profiles of company initiatives or activities where Wine and Sustainability go hand in hand. This week we talk about Real Companhia Velha.
