EcoSostenibleWine 2016: Miguel Torres fights for the environment

Miguel Torres is Spain’s most famous wine producer and a long time fighter for an environmentally friendly viticulture. According to him, the wine world is facing several major challenges. The two biggest are how to reduce the use of copper in organic farming and how to tackle global warming.

And it was precisely these two issues that were discussed on November 4 during the 5th Organic and Sustainable Viticulture and Climate Change Conference (EcoSostenibleWine) in Vilafranca del Penedès in Catalonia. Sponsor and main organizer was Miguel Torres. We were invited to participate in the debate because Miguel Torres has read our book Biodynamic, Organic and Natural Wines (great honour to have been read by such an authority!).

During the conference, researchers presented various findings about how copper affects the soil, what could possibly replace it and how to reduce carbon emissions. We will return to these interesting topics shortly on BKWine Magazine.
