We give a meaning to the words

Some words set the trends and become part of the modern jargon, they are commonly used, as they become keywords that communicate modernity, reliability, accuracy, reliability, quality…although the significance of some of these words is not always so clear thus sometimes they are used in an inappropriate manner. For example, 'sustainability' is a word more and more used in each sector, economic, environmental, social, but surely many people would be in difficulty in having to explain the meaning. Sustainability is the capacity to endure. In ecology the word describes how biological systems remain diverse and productive over time. For humans, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has ecological, economic, political and cultural dimensions. A common effort to adapt the social collective human consumption of resources within a level of sustainable development is important for the present and the future of humanity!

Magis is the first and most advanced project for the sustainable production of wine in Italy, and one of the most advanced in the world: Castello di Gabbiano has joined the project Magis, take part in this project means to work in full compliance with the sustainability and security of winemaking, and we aim to achieve this certification!
