Wine Making:
VinyardWine MakerVinification
Mediterranean climate, with a very hot, dry summer. Cold winters with heavy rainy spells (600mm/yr.). Temperatures range widely in the summer, and the sun shines for more than 3,000 hours a year. -Grapes hand-picked by our growers are unloaded and immediately de-stemmed and crushed. The addition of choice yeast initiates fermentation at controlled temperatures (28ºC). The maceration, or joint fermentation of grapes and skins, occurs during this period through a cyclical upward pumping of the must from the bottom of the vats. After fermenting, the wine is sampled on a regular basis, with the best batches being duly identified, set aside and stabilised. Two special batches are then selected, one destined to age in French oak, later to be rejoined with the other, which had been kept in vats. This mixture is the final product, ready for bottling.
Ageing
 
SoliProduced
Largely derived from volcanic rock, mostly quartz-bearing diorite, some layers of schist derivates and a small deposit of soils derived from a rana-type formation -
