Vineyards

Planted in 1994, these are high trellis vines watered by Mendoza River. Medium depth soils. Located in a wide night-day temperature difference area, the vineyards are at 900 m above sea level with excellent light, typical of the region.

Vinification Process

Grapes are harvested when they have the optimal sugar and acidity conditions to get the base wine for the sparkling wine. In the winery, the must obtained through pneumatic press is separated and fermented at 15 – 16 °C until there is no trace of sugar. This wine is sent to stainless steel tanks to make the sparkling wine following the Charmat method. Sugar and yeasts are added for the second fermentation, which lasts for about 25 days. Once finished, the expedition liqueur is added, centrifuged and then filtered, ready for bottling at 0 ºC and 6 atm pressure.
