Step by Step Production
Harvesting - The winemaking process begins with the critical harvest.
Preparing for Fermentation - Before they are fermented, the grapes must be crushed, destemmed and pressed.
Fermentation - In fermentation, yeast turns the wine's sugars into alcohol.
Malolactic Fermentation - A second type of fermentation that results in a smoother, softer wine.
Maturation - Before they are bottled, wines mature in oak or stainless steel casks.
Clarification - The final step before bottling, clarification removes solid particles from the wine.
