Sustainability and Biodiversity 1

Buccia Nera has always been very sensitive to environmental sustainability, preserving the terraces, the dry stone walls and the olive groves along the most difficult and shady slopes, thus maintaining the hydro-geographical system and the typical Tuscan landscape.
But it has also always been careful to safeguard biodiversity, preserving the different olive cultivars typical of the area, maintaining the alternation between vineyards, woods and olive groves so that the ecosystem remains in balance.

As a tribute to biodiversity and tradition, an entire plot of “mixed” cultivation has been preserved where rows of vines alternate with rows of olive trees. In the nineties it was deliberatly chosen not to completely eradicate either of the two plants, which until then had coexisted through the “married vines” training system. Through this ancient system, the vine was left to grow close to a plant, in this case the olive tree, to which it clung with its branches. This system is no longer widespread for numerous technical and managerial reasons but the mixed cultivation in alternate rows was a valid alternative to preserve this example of biodiversity.

In order to enhance the production of Evo oil and preserve the olive heritage, the company has aimed to produce only the highest quality extra virgin olive oil.
