The grapes are at Vicente Faria winery Harvested and selected by hand, transported in small boxes. They use the Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation with pre-fermentation maceration. The mash is then pressed in a wine press, the so-called wine press. So the solid grape residues, also called grains or pomace, are separated from the sweet grape juice. A careful procedure is particularly important here so that no seeds are crushed and release their bitter substances into the wine.
