The Cousiño family is committed to the environment and has implemented an integrated sustainable management system into their production processes; their mission is to minimize the impact on the environment as much as possible, while still maintaining the quality that characterizes Cousiño Macul wines.
Based on international standards to limit the environmental impact of winemaking, they are proud to employ:
- Energy Efficiency
- Waste Minimization
- Pesticide and Fertilizer Management
- Certificación ISO140001 (Download)
The winery is 100% dedicated to maintaining a harmonious, mutually beneficial relationship with its neighbors, the surrounding community and nature. We recycle all of the waste we generate; paper and cardboard are sent to SOREPA, plastics go with the intermediary Luz Valenzuela; through COANIQUEM, glasses are sent to Cristalerías Chile, staves are recycled with the company TINTO and all wine lees to Industrias Vinicas.
In addition, two years of work, in April 2017, the RILEs (liquid industrial waste) plant began to operate, which aims to significantly improve the management and disposal of wastewater from the vineyard in Paine.
The RILEs are treated in our warehouses through a biological system that includes bacteria that consume organic matter, with this we avoid the serious effects that the waste produces on the environment and on the aquatic flora and fauna of the rivers, lakes and natural channels. Thus we obtain clean and odorless water as a result.
The construction of the new RILEs plant allows to reuse all the waste without contaminating and without generating odors that could impact the neighbors. In this way, the Cousiño Macul Vineyard, one of the oldest in Chile, will seek to minimize its water footprint and obtain efficient results in its wine production.Certificado de Sustentabilidad Certificación ISO 14001 Descargar Código de Ética Descargar Política Ambiental
