WINE

Grapes are harvested by hand at the beginning of October, when some of the bunches start slightly overripening.
The alcoholic fermentation is done in steel tanks at a controlled temperature and requires contact with the skins for at least 3 weeks. This is followed by the malolactic fermentation which is carried out spontaneously again in steel tanks.
At the beginning of the following year after the harvest, refinement is carried out in small oak barrels and lasts at least 18 months. After bottling, the wines remain in the cellar in bottles which are kept for at least a year in a lying down position, thus continuing its evolution to the best.
