The grapes are collected during harvest in small crates to ensure that they reach the cellar undamaged.  In the closed tank press skin maceration lasts 1–2 hours to enhance natural aroma extraction.  After an average 12-hour sedimentation period the juice is moved into the fermenter.  

Vinification takes place in stainless-steel tanks at temperatures of between 16° to 18° C.  Initially, fermentation is temperature-controlled; the entire fermentation process covers a period of 6 to 8 weeks.  The wine is kept on its fine lees until spring, when filtration takes place. Bottling is done in late spring of the year following harvest.
