The team working in our cellar is detail oriented and strives to combine traditional with modern methods in order to produce high quality and modern style wines.

The winery produces 4 million liters of premium wines in stainless, cement vats, and French & American oak barrels. Grapes arrive in small bins to the receiving area where they are hand-sorted before going to the destemmer. After a gentle destemming, the fruit is then sent to tanks for maceration and then fermentation for 30 days, approximately. The fermentation is carried out using yeast and a malolactic fermentation follows for the reds.
