Wines

The farm has a unique locality and is situated relatively high above sea level. The terrain consists of many different slopes and sides, which makes it ideal for many grape varieties.

The different soil types were mapped so that the best root stock varieties could be chosen for each vineyard.

 

Wine is still made by using old traditional methods. Red wines are fermented in open cement vats by a trusted and tried method. After the grapes are crushed and milled, it is left for cold maturation of the skins and juice, to give extra character and body. After fermentation starts, the skins have to be regularly pressed down into the fermenting juice by hand. This is a soft treatment for fermenting wine and very labour intensive. The winemaker is involved with the fermenting process from the beginning to the end. He can monitor the process better and make adjustments if necessary.

 

Wine has been made and exported here since 1704
