The grapes are hand harvested in little boxes of 15 kg during the second and third week of September, at the optimal maturation stage. Harvest is carried out during the first hours of the day so that grapes enter the winery with a temperature of around 15ºC. The grapes go through two selection tables before entering into the deposits.
Fermentation is carried out in truncated-cone shaped tanks of 7,000 liters (the hat is thinner and this inverse shape allows softer and less aggressive pressings) at a controlled temperature of 28º C.
