Wine production process

The grapes arrived at the winery in the morning hours. The mechanical harvest during the early hours of the morning, allowed the grapes to be delivered and processed while the ambient temperatures were still cool. The clusters were immediately and gently pressed to receive the highest quality must.
After chilling the must and approximately 24 hours of settling in tank, the cleared must was decanted to another chilled stainless-steel tank to begin the alcoholic fermentation. The alcoholic fermentation was carried out for two weeks at a temperature of 14℃.
