The Grapes are Transported to the Winery with Great Care

The containers of grapes are brought back to the cool stone buildings of the winery on a regular basis – it is important that they spend as little time as possible out in the vineyard once they have been picked. Each container of grapes is brought in one by one – there are no machines for this!

The grapes are stored in the cool stone building of the winery.  The winery is built using local stone, with walls half a meter thick in order to keep the sun out and the cool air in.

The grapes are stacked in large, airy trays which allow the movement of air, keeping them as cool as possible.

Quickly brought back
