    Food Suggestions

    It can be enjoyed alone or as an accompaniment to good seafood.

    In The Cellar

    Optimally ripe grapes were received at the cellar. After ensuring good protection against oxidation, the grapes were crushed and allowed 6 hours skin contact time before pressing. After a clean settling, the juice was racked into fermentation tanks and fermented cold with selected yeast.
