A commitment to sustainable progress
Ángel de Viñas
A vineyard in Arribes
González Byass is taking its Ángel de Viñas project to D.O. Arribes to help revive and preserve a vineyard in Pereña de la Ribera.
Angel de Viñas comes to Galicia
The third initiative being rolled out under the Ángel de Viñas umbrella is the revival of a vineyard in the municipality of Oimbra, (Orense) in the Monterrei Denomination of Origin. The vines in the 0.6-hectare vineyard are an average of 85 years old. The majority are grafted with the Doña Blanca grape variety, and a small percentage with Mouratón, a red variety.
Two viñedos singulares at the heart of Espiells
The second strand to the “Ángel de Viñas” initiative aims to restore and preserve two vineyards in Xarel.lo and Macabeo located in Espiells, an historic wine-growing area of Alto Penedés. 40 and 50 years old respectively, they are located in a small rural enclave blessed with great natural and viticultural capital. Both plots, worked by several generations of a family of winegrowers from Espiells that has had links to Vilarnau for many years, are set to be the focus of our second venture to support old vineyards.
VIDas at Beronia Rueda
Care for the environment has been a priorty at Beronia Rueda from the outset, starting with the winery’s design and construction. Some of the ideas that underpin the VIDas project at Beronia Rueda include the more than 2 hectares of protected woods at very centre of the winery, planned plantings of trees and shrubs around the winery and a scheme to encourage faunal life in the vineyard.
VIDas at Viñas del Vero
Tits, Brown owls, owls, swifts, bats, tawny owls, robin red breasts and great tits are just some of the species that have come, qute naturally, to inhabit the 50 nesting boxes we have placed in the areas surrounding the Viñas del Vero winery and vineyards.
González Byass’ “Vineyard Angel” project to recover two unique vineyards in the heart of Penedès
For the second year running, Vineyard Angel (Ángel de Viñas) will rescue two unique vineyards in the Espiells area, Alto Penedés region: the initiative is designed to recover and care for old vineyards on the verge of extinction.
González Byass, el “Ángel de Viñas”
“Vinyard Angel” is an initiative that González Byass and its Foundation have devised in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Madrid to retrieve, preserve, look after and maintain old vineyards that are on the brink of extinction. All with the aim of preventing loss of biodiversity, tradition, culture and history.
González Byass forges ahead with sustainable electric mobility
12 González Byass wineries and production facilities located in Spain are set to have free charging points installed for electric vehicles. The initiative is the González Byass Family of Wines and Spirits’ way of making a tiny contribution to the move towards sustainable electric mobility in Spain.
