Why do vines have to be resistant?
Significant amounts of plant protection products (fungicides) are applied in viticulture to prevent possible fungal infestation and to secure the harvest. According to analyzes by the statistical office of the EU (EuroStat), the use of pesticides per hectare and year in viticulture is by far the highest compared to all other agricultural products produced in the EU.
However, PIWI vines have a high resistance to fungal diseases and allow a significant reduction in the use of pesticides, thus protecting the environment.
Enjoying quality wine is being revolutionised in a new way. Consumers get the opportunity to explore new undiscovered paths.
A win-win situation for winemakers and consumers!
