Vinification tecnique: The vine-harvest (completely done by hand) usually  starts the first week of October. Each vineyard is harvested by hand, in several steps, only when the grapes are ripe. Each part is fermented separately.

The grapes are moved to a terrace situated on the roof of the cellar where there is the destemmer. The must enters directly by gravity the cellar’s woody containers (capacity 20-30 hectoliters) through some openings of the terrace. During the alcoholic fermentation (at controlled temperatures: 28-30°C) we manually press the skins. The liquid and the skins are in contact about 30 days then they are divided and the wine is transferred into the barrels (capacity: 225-500 liters) where the malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine lies in the barrels for about a year, later it is moved into concrete containers and after 4-6 months we bottle it. The wine is refined in the bottles for a further year.

Date of bottling: Spring.
