Following the Gravity-Flow Principle of Winemaking at Antigal
Situated inside a medieval building from the late 19th century, the wine cellar has recently been remodeled with advanced machinery. The winery follows a gravity-flow platform that utilizes the advantage of gravity for soft, delicate winemaking practices. Preventing the usage of massive pumps and crushers creates excellent quality – fermentation in stainless tanks, followed by aging in wooden barrels completes their wiemaking process with care.
