HARVEST

Harvesting is strictly done by hand using crates that can contain up to 10/15 kg of grapes that are first cooled down during the night and then pressed or de-stemmed, according to the type. This requires more work compared to a conventional plant.

We begin our work in late September and we end up in October. The results, as you can obviously understand, may vary between year and year.

“We do all the work manually. This requires more work compared to a conventional plant.”
