The grapes are hand-harvested in early September they are rushed to the winery where they are softly squeezed with manual presses. The resulting pulp and juice is then refrigerated in stainless steel tanks at low, near freezing temperatures in order to keep it from fermenting. This procedure helps insure the freshness and vitality of the wine.
