WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
The Pinot Gris grapes are harvested, pressed, de-stemmed and left to macerate for a short period on their skins, and this process is what makes the particular color of this wine. Fermentation takes place in steel vats and at the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is transferred to special steel silos and a small part in oak barrels for maturation, which lasts for 8 months.
