WINE MAKING

Our grapes are quickly taken to the winery, cooled to 5°C and kept at low temperature. Then they are crushed in the absence of oxygen and the best quality must is separated. Fermentation Is at a controlled temperature.

AGING

After fermentation, the wine is put in stainless steel vats to clarify and mature. Continuous monitoring, decanting and remuage bring definite organoleptic characteristics and quality to the wine. The next April, the wine is bottled. After one month of maturing in the bottle, the wine is ready for sale.
