Reception of the grapes in our winery; destemming and crushing of the grapes with a light pressing
in order to extract the grape must. The different grape varieties are always vinified separately for
elaboration. We carry out a static settling process with help from cold temperature. Further on, the
fermentation process lasts for about 3 to 4 weeks with cold temperatures (never above 15ºC).
Afterwards, a racking operation, or transfer of the wine, is carried out to eliminate the thick lees,
leaving only the fine lees in the wine. Finally, the clarification, stabilisation and a light filtration is
done before the wine is bottled.
