WINE MAKING PROCESS
The grapes are allowed to dry gently in well-ventilated rooms for around 4-5 months, concentrating their flavours, sweetness and colour. In winter, the grapes are crushed, fermentation starts with natural yeast and then the must is filled into 500l oak casks to finish fermenting.The wine matures in wood for 25-30 months before bottling.
