The grapes are hand harvested and transported in small baskets to the winery. Once the grapes arrive they are then de-stemmed and lightly crushed to undergo alcoholic fermentation in vertical steel tanks. This will take place for about 7-8 days in contact with the skins in a temperature of 25°C.
After racking the malo-lactic fermentation will take place also in stainless steel tanks. After a few months in tank the wines are typically bottled in the spring and will be ready for the market in the beginning of the summer.
