Wine Making

We make taut, balanced wines with beautiful acidity. We use pneumatic press for slow and soft extraction of the juice. No over-ripeness here.
Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled tanks, where alcoholic fermentation starts on natural yeasts.
Ever since 2011, the cork has been pushed down an extra 2 to 3 mm at bottling, and topped with technical wax before shipping. This helps us to fight premox and preserve the wine’s integrity. We want every bottle in a case to taste the same!
We only use big barrels for the whites (450 and 500 liters) to limit the influence of the wood. We work with five different cooperages who provide us medium toast and fine grain barrels. We do some batonnage to add body and then bottle by gravity after a light filtration.
