Vinification

The vineyards are selected by our winemakers by tasting the grapes frequently to find the optimal date for harvesting regarding the ripeness as well as the aromatic potential. Firstly, the grapes macerate for several hours on their skins and then are gently press pneumatically. Both varieties ferment on their own in order to develop their specific character. This is carried out at low temperature in stainless steel tanks keeping as much fruit as possible. Ageing is done on fine lees during several months.
