The grapes are hand selected and picked into small lug boxes and transported directly to the winery. Our red wines are made in open fermenters and punched down by hand six times a day. Soft pressed, press juice added to free run. All processes are temperature controlled. We do not fine our wines and only one light single pass filtration pre-bottling. We endeavour to bring our fruit to the bottle in the most direct and pure fashion possible, and in this way expressing our terroir.
