VINIFICATION

The vinification is almost totally made up on vitrified cement tanks considered the better choice because they are suitable for both: winemaking and refinement. In cement we have a better insulation than in steel tanks because causes less stress to the must, and also for the maintenance of adequate temperatures. Our aim is to produce natural wines, we use only indigenous yeasts and we intervene on fermentation only through the control of temperature and time of maceration.
