Bress are blessed with access to harvests from several sites throughout Victoria which can be vinified and assembled into statuesque wines of strong varietal definition and clearly distinguishable Victorian regionality.

A slow vinification is initiated through indigenous yeast strains, the ferments are treated to hand plunging thrice daily. After pressing, the wine is transferred to French oak hogsheads for completion of malolactic, following which Bress is racked and left to mature under oak for a year.
