Patagonia’s glaciers are melting alarmingly fast. Viña San Pedro in Chile will soon launch a wine to support Glaciares Chilenos, a non-profit association that works to protect Patagonia’s glaciers. The wine is called South Cause and will be available as red, white and rosé. The wine will go on sale towards the end of the year.
Viña San Pedro is Chile’s second-largest wine producer with 4,270 hectares in Chile and just over 1,000 hectares in Argentina. South Cause is part of a larger environmental project which means e.g. that San Pedro will reduce the environmental impact from bottles and packaging.
The project includes reducing the weight of bottles, by 2030 only use packaging materials that can be reused or recycled, increasing consumer awareness by writing recycling instructions on all their labels.
