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, the first clarification, 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.
