Vinification

During the harvest the grapes are collected into the crates and pressed. After the crushing the wine is transferred into steel tanks, where the fermentation begins. Seven - eight days later we rack the wine off its lees and transfer it into oak barrels which hold about 225 litres and where the fermentation ends. In these oak barrels the wine matures for about 15 - 18 months. Before its marketing the wine is further aged in bottles.
