Products and Development


The grapes, harvested by hand, are collected in small containers that allow the fruit not to suffer during its transfer to the winery. Plastic boxes specially designed for this purpose are used for this. The transport to the winery is carried out quickly to avoid possible early fermentations and it is destemmed to separate the stalks from the grape berries, with no more crushing than the minimum required by the de-stemming action. The pomaces thus obtained ferment for a relatively short time, during which the temperature is controlled to prevent it from exceeding a certain level above which the wine obtained would not have the required qualities, especially aromatic ones. In this initial (short) period, the must is in contact with the pomace to extract as much as possible the substances from the grape that will make up the personality of the wine.

At the right moment, the must (already converted into wine) is separated and its treatment is carried out to achieve the stabilization of its vital signs.
