Food production has one of the main impacts on global warming. Because this sector needs to occupy terrestrial land and use water in high quantities. Besides that, the food sector is responsible for nearly 29% of anthropogenic greenhouse emissions. The study aimed to compute the carbon footprint of one bottle of wine was 750 mL volume. With this purpose, Life Cycle Assessment was carried out by using CCaLC2 software for the approach of cradle-to-grave. Data was taken from the previous literature research. For computing the carbon footprint of the process, raw materials and requiring energy input amounts, production and transportation steps, and recycling information defined in CCaLC2 software. In this study, it was enlightening which of the steps contributed to CO2 emission more growing of grapes in a vineyard to an end-of-life wine bottle.
