The winemaking journey begins with a traditional approach. Grapes are harvested, then crushed, destemmed, and pressed using artisanal methods. This prepares the must (grape juice) for fermentation. Next, the must undergoes a spontaneous fermentation process with the grape skins still present. This all happens inside clay amphorae, which are lined with beeswax for an extra touch. The wine then ages "sur lies," meaning on the spent yeast cells, for seven months within the amphorae. Finally, the wine is bottled, capturing the unique characteristics imparted by this ancient technique.
