Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table), then partially destemmed (a third sorted out can be done if necessary with our optical machine). Afterwards put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts we have in the grape berries around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) and crushing are very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing.
