Grapes are all hand picked in small parcel lots and carefully transported to the nearby winery where they are delicately pressed within an hour. A Bucher airbag press is applied with a modified champagne cycle, to produce around 450-550 litres per tonne of free run juice from the whole bunch pressed grapes. Base wines are tank and barrel fermented, a small percentage is aged on lees until tirage. The wine is celared for bottle fermentation until disgorgement, followed by some time on cork prior to release.
