The winery is totally buried, which avoids seasonal temperature variations. The hand picked harvest is taken to the cellar ,sorted and totally destemmed before falling by gravity in the semi buried tanks so as to limit handling to the minimum.

Two delestages a day are done during early fermentation . In late fermentation pumping over of the must is carried out. The grapes stay in tanks 12 to 15 days. In our range of products , the Sereine cuvee is the only one to be kept in barrels after fermentation with its lees (malolactic fermentation). This technique softens the wine. Read less
