The grapes are destemmed and crushed and then passed to the pneumatic press, then the must goes into a tank to decant forone day, after that time the clean juice bound for fermentation in stainless steel tanks (65°F) is filtered with a vacuum filter. Following fermentation, the wine is racked to separate it from the gross lees. The next process is cold stabilization, subjecting the wine to 23°F in an isothermal tank for a week to precipitate bitartrates. After that week, the wine is sterile filtered and bottled.
