Illuminating Sustainability: Castel Mimi's Green Initiatives for a Brighter Future

At Castel Mimi, they try to minimize their CO2 footprint in several ways. They do our lighting exclusively with LEDs, whose impact is nine times less than standard lighting. The 6 hectares on which Castel Mimi is located are lit with over a thousand LED bulbs. Compared to a standard light bulb, an LED luminaire generates 70 kg less CO2 per year. So, the thousand LED bulbs installed at Mimi Castle allow to produce 70,000 kg less CO2 each year.

Green Vineyards and Lighter Bottles: Castel Mimi's Holistic Approach to Sustainable Winemaking

At the events they frequently organize, they promote using the train as the means of transport with the lowest CO2 emissions. They have ongoing projects to green up green spaces. They promote recycling among their visitors and create conditions for recycling glass, cardboard, and plastic.

In addition to carbon footprint reduction and energy independence, Castel Mimi aims to gradually change its vineyard management, which will result in less negative environmental impact.

In the restaurant’s kitchen, they use natural products. They have a garden behind the castle where they grow vegetables all year round.

Another way to reduce CO2 emissions is the export of Castel Mimi wines. Transport is one of the biggest producers of CO2, and its effect is reflected in every bottle of wine that we export. That’s why they bottle wine in easy bottles and avoid heavy ones. The more bottles that fit within the truck’s load limits, the less CO2 per bottle is produced by the vehicle.
