AIR indicator reflects the total greenhouse gas emission directly or indirectly associated with the production of a 0.75 liter bottle of wine. Its value is calculated in terms of kg of CO2 equivalent. The life cycle of a bottle of wine comprises four main phases: vineyard management, transformation of grapes into wine, bottling, distribution, bottles refrigeration and glass disposal.
The emissions produced by each phase (named respectively vineyard, cellar distribution and consumption) are measured as a percentage of the total emissions produced during the life cycle of one bottle of wine.
