Wine making
The grapes are hand-picked and transported to the winery inside small baskets. At the winery they are de-stemmed and the must is added (prepared in the proceeding days with grapes from the same vine) to initiate the natural fermentation. The fermentation continues for approximately 9 days at 25*C, at the end of which the grape pomace is separated from the wine and pressed. After the malolactic fermentation which takes place spontaneously, the wine refines for the following winter and spring in stainless steel vessels before being bottled.
