Winemaking After sorting in the vineyard and in the winery, the grapes are de-stemmed and then directly put in tank. The spontaneous fermentation then starts. The grapes will stay in tank for roughly 3 weeks during alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then put in oak barrels (no new oak) by gravity for 14 months. No filtration or fining is performed.
