Sustainable development, our reality.


Due to their recycling activity and wine-growing by-products recovery, distilleries have been evoluating in a sustainable development process and in a circular economy for more than 60 years.


At Grap'Sud, grapes are our primary resource - so showing respect for the environment is only natural.

The industrial development policy is oriented toward the use of renewable energy sources, especially biomass sourced from the wine-making process. The distillery is the tool used for processing all the by-prodcuts of the wine trade, the aim being to recycle them and prevent pollution
This is why the different locations of Grap'Sud - classified under the French environmental protection system - have cutting-edge systems for protecting water resources, preventing air pollution, limitating the landscape impact and recycling organic matter.
