Sustainability and ethics. Sustainability also applies to work ethics and economic sustainability in production. For this reason the Dal Bianco family has chosen to let its Colle del Principe brand undergo voluntary SMETA audits. SMETA stands for Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit, and is an audit form method issued by SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) for the purpose of demonstrating the company’s commitment to social issues and ethical and environmental standards throughout the supply chain. The Standard therefore has a place in a responsible, ethical business to ensure health and safety, labour regulations, environment protection and company ethics.

Our company is IFS, BRC and ISO 9001 certified. IFS and BRC international standards ensure safety and quality on an international scale. They are certifications sought after by companies in the food and agricultural industries to certify the safety of food and the quality of products and processes. The main objective is to encourage and guarantee safe products and reinforce and promote food safety throughout the production chain. ISO 9001:2015 is the international benchmark standard regarding quality management. It is addressed to companies that intend to improve their quality performance in terms of increased efficiency and effectiveness for their in-house processes, as an instrument to achieve their aims and enhance consumer satisfaction.

VEGAN. All our wines are produced without using preparations of animal origin (e.g. egg or blood albumin, animal or fish gelatine). As there is no internationally recognised certification, our company has asked all its suppliers for a self-declaration that testifies to the absence of substances derived from animals in the winemaking products they supply. We have created a logo that, together with the self-declaration, provides proof that vegans can happily enjoy our wines.
