The Carline ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY
The company has always been a supporter of eco-friendly viticulture and in recent years has enthusiastically joined the project “Winezero“, funded by Veneto Region, which has enabled to determine the carbon footprint of the entire wine industry to demonstrate that, talking about the emissions of greenhouse gases, we can talk about conservation and sustainable viticulture, implementing appropriate agronomic choices.
With the information gathered, the company is able to implement behavioral and operational solutions such as to further reduce CO2 emissions in the various sectors and company procedures: in the vineyard, in the cellar, in the transport, in the supply of electricity (since several years the company is fully self-sufficient thanks to a photovoltaic system) and infrastructure.
The company’s production is certified ICEA – Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification, the body that deals with the safety of products, market transparency and the health of the consumer.
ICEA promotes the cultural traditions of the various territories and supports initiatives useful for the development of consumption more natural and healthy.

The Company considers the protocols of Organic Agriculture and Quality an essential point for its activities, with the dual purpose of providing a healthy product to its consumers and to constantly improve its corporate standards.
Our customers ask us if our wines are vegan, and, as in our productions we do not use any animal adjuvant wine, nor GMO, we got the BIO VEGAN certification by ICEA.
Dato che nelle nostre produzioni non utilizziamo alcun coadiuvante enologico di origine animale, nè OGM, abbiamo ottenuto la certificazione BIO VEGAN da ICEA.
The Equalitas standard uses the modern and integrated approach to sustainability according to the three pillars:
- Economical: ability to generate income and work
- Environmental: ability to maintain the quality and reproducibility of natural resources
- Ethical: ability to guarantee conditions of human well-being for workers, consumer protection, community involvement and development.
The agricultural firm Le Carline has created, along with other wineries in the Veneto, the “Integrated Plan for promotion and information of the Veneto organic wine in the market of other countries”. The project’s name is “Organic Wine Venice“, one of the activities supported by Veneto Region and the Ministry of Agriculture, for the promotion of wine abroad.
The program therefore plans to involve only wines from organic farming and made from indigenous grapes and of ancient cultivation, as the Lison DOCG Classico produced by Le Carline.
Among the wide range of Le Carline wines there are some of the most important Designations of Origin of Eastern Veneto: the DOC Lison Pramaggiore, the DOC Venezia and DOCG Lison.
Le Carline has enthusiastically joined the Veneto Region project, put into practice by the Agenzia veneta per l’innovazione nel settore primario, which aims to study the agronomic and oenological behavior in the Veneto territory of the most recent resistant PIWI vines (an acronym from the German pilzwiderstandfähig which means “fungus-resistant vines”), registered in the National Register of wine grape varieties, with a view to more sustainable viticulture
After 3 years have passed since the planting of the vineyard, in 2017 we have the first significant harvest of the grapes obtained from all the varieties planted and foreseen in the project. In collaboration with Veneto Agricoltura, pure micro-vinifications of all varieties were carried out, in order to be able to register them in the Regional Register of wine grape varieties.
“Thanks to the resistant PIWI varieties – states Daniele Piccinin – we have created vineyards which, in addition to the high level of quality, also allow for high environmental sustainability, a theme that has always been at the center of our company mission. In fact, these vines are mainly resistant to downy mildew and powdery mildew, the two vine diseases most feared by winemakers and therefore require only a few treatments”.
Le Carline is associated with PIWI International, an association that brings together the producers of PIWI wines.
