Viñas Atlánticas: Project promoted by the Pontevedra Provincial Council

Bodegas Martin Códax and two other wineries in Salnés’ Valley take part in it. The project involves establishing a sensor net in Salnés’ region to get metorology details which let us know the state of diseases.
This information will be useful as a tool to reduce the use of treatments and chemical products in winemaking.
The main aim is to create an environmental management system which contributes to the sustainable development in viticulture activity thorough the following strategies:

  • Biodiversity protection
  • Reduction of carbon emissions
  • Sustainable working
