FROM GRAPE TO WINE


During the harvest, the grapes are carefully selected to be picked at optimum ripeness.
Using traditional process with temperature control, maceration before fermentation, crushing and destalking, each grape variety is fermented in separate tanks. 

 

THE BLENDING


The blending is the last step of the wine production. This final touch must be consistent with the previous stages, from harvesting grapes at perfect ripeness until winemaking.
By mixing the different wines vinified by grape variety, by terroir, by land ... we elaborate the best wine possible for our pleasure, and yours !
