Microclimate: Harsh winters and cool summer nights, due to high altitude, allow grapes to ripen slowly reaching perfect maturation, retaining acidity and fully developing the distinctive flavours and aromas of both varieties.
Harvest: Moschofilero 1 st October to 7th October and Sauvignon blanc 17th August to 22nd August
Vinification: Grapes are handpicked and transported in small baskets, they are then chilled to 7-8o C in cold storage, followed by pneumatic press and classic white vinification. Fermentation at controlled temperatures of 16-17o C. Care is taken to ensure gentle handling of grapes.
