Vinification Methods at the Winery
In the making of the wine, the process managers at the winery carefully monitor the quality of the grape even while it is still on the vines. After the grapes are harvested, they are delivered to the winery where they are analyzed and fed to the grape de-stemmer, where they are processed to avoid breaking the seeds. Following this is the process of purification of usually between 10 and 48 hours, after which the final adjustments are made. Usually, wines are left to ferment until all the sugar is converted into alcohol or when the process manager decides to stop it. Wines are left to age in barrels, which is a natural way of giving the wine greater depth and a deeper intensity to the flavor.
