The ripest and healthy grapes are harvested by hand, also there is a strict control of the fermentation temperature and later the wine is matured in oak barrels.
Vintage – is done from early morning (between 5 and 11am) to keep the grapes cool and fresh till they arrive to the factory for rigorous processing. Once grapes arrive to the factory they are subjected to manual selection holding 2-stage sorting of the ripest and healthy grapes. After it grapes are processed by the most famous and professional equipment from France named “Vaslin Bucher”.Knowing that Mother Nature gives us a new set of challenges each year, we’re always open to adjusting our winemaking technique to ensure that we have the purest expression from the vineyard and accurately portray the vintage in our wine. Each vintage is different. The same winemaking recipe doesn’t work for every single year or fruit source.
Everything for these vines and wines is done perfect: it begins with the correct crop load per bush and namely the limitation of harvest per each bush in order to get the best and healthiest grapes;
