Vines are ploughed. We do not use weedkiller Pruning is short to regulate the vine’s growth and its grapes yields The vines shoots are tied up along vires to be given the favourable angle to ripen the grapes.
The grapes are picked up by machines at the best maturity. The stalks are taken off to avoid vegetal tastes.
The whole grapes are placed in vats. The process of fermentation starts naturally. It starts with the juice that runs from burst grapes and also takes place into each grape. The maceration lasts from 12 to 18 days, it allows the full extraction of fruit flavours but also a stronger structure (longer maceration).
At room temperature.
