Château Ad Francos and their Unique Winemaking Methods

Château Ad Francos uses a rare winemaking method. They carry out the fermentation in their brand new barrels using a very small amount of grapes. This method demands huge and careful manipulation of the casks. It also involves dismantling casks for extracting the juice. This unique technique for winemaking provides more concentrated wines. After that, they age the wines in new barrels for around 12 months. The Château Ad Francos is estimated to produce an average of 6,000 bottles each vintage. Popular wines at this tiny estate include Ad Francos, Chateau Le Priolat, Les Pierres Blanches, and Chateau Ad Rosam. Château Ad Francos is also open to guests from all over the world.
