In the winemaking process of white wines, after the grapes destemming and crushing, winery uses cryomaceration. The cryomaceration technique allows the extraction of the maximum amount of flavour substances found in the inner part of the grape skin, without negatively influencing the quality of white wine. The obtained must is cooled to 5-8 ° C for a period of time ranging from 10 to 24 hours. The maturation of white wine takes place in stainless steel vessels or in 225 litre barrels. Characteristic of red wines is a maceration-fermentation process on top of the must. Fermentation takes place in oak tubs, solely with the help of local yeasts. The process takes about 20 days, during which time the must is in contact with the grape mark and takes over the necessary tannins, the aromas, and the necessary dyes.
