The choicest bunches are hand picked into 6kg buckets, transferred individually to the winery and placed gently into a bag press without rendering any juices.The lightest pressure is applied once the press is full, an exclusive free run juice that's reserved for Antonina. Batches are cold settled to remove solids before a slow and even vinification to select yeasts over the course of three weeks.
