Grapes are then poured into one of eight 50-ton pneumatic temperature controlled presses, followed by skin contact maceration at 15°C / 59°F for 8 to 12 hours before being gently pressed. Stainless steel fermented. The must is then transferred to underground cold storage vats and kept at 5°C / 41°F for three to five days. Dry ice and refrigerated vats are used to slow fermentation and storage at –4°C year round ensures freshness. Bottled to order.
