Night harvest of all varieties except Grenache and Muscat of Alexandria.

Grapes are harvested at night due to the low temperatures. In this way, the grapes reach the winery at a temperature of approximately 9ºC. In the case of grapes harvested by day, they can reach temperatures of between 22-30ºC. In this way we save energy and slow down the enzymatic processes.

Use of peristaltic pump: Use of the peristaltic pump ensures that the grapes are processed very gently, without crushing or breaking them.

Fermentation tank in the shape of a truncated cone: The truncated cone shape of the tanks makes it easier to handle the cap (the solid parts in suspension left floating on the surface of the must).

Vertical hydraulic presses: This type of press, like those used in the past, does not break or crush the grape skin, obtaining a pressed wine of extremely high quality. However, production is much lower than in other types of press, and much more work is required. These presses are equipped with a computer to control time and pressure.

Testing tanks: used to study experiments carried out in the field. So, we carry out micro-winemaking using different clones, varieties, and growing techniques.
