Franco is an ardent supporter of organic and regenerative agriculture over intensive farming practices, choosing it to respect the environment, the local rural traditions and the consumer too. As well as farming, Chiusa Grande have examined and carefully monitored every step of their winemaking journey to reduce their their carbon footprint. They run entirely on solar power supplied by their solar panels, use solely LED lighting and electric vehicles in the cellar, with the next step being a fully electric tractor in the vineyards too.
