The harvest

The moment the grapes are picked determines the acidity, the sweetness and the flavour of the wine. The harvest also depends greatly on the climate and how the grapes are gathered.

The main variables that affect the quality of the grapes that arrive at the winery are: An optimum ripeness, grapes in good health, the picking system and quick and careful transport of the grapes to the winery.

The pressing

In this process we seek to obtain the highest quality, and for this reason we use a pressing process that controls the pressure, keeping it as low as possible to obtain an excellent primary material.

The clarification and filtration

Using natural products, respecting the nature of the wine, we carry out the clarification to precipitate the particles and prevent turbidity.

We select the most suitable materials to guarantee maximum purity and quality of the product, to guarantee that it does not lose any of its properties on its way to the consumer. From the vine to the glass.
