The harvest periods are very spread out. From early September to mid-October.
Each vine is harvested and made into wine separately. A cold maceration time is carried out before the start in alcoholic fermentation. The fermentation is done spontaneously thanks to the native yeasts. Extractions are made by winding and shedding. After the fermentation, there is a maceration going from one month to a month and a half. All grape varieties are blended during spring.
24 months in concrete barrels.
