Espaliers with Guyot training produce, with their 3000 stumps, around 50 quintals per hectare. The vineyard is between 15 and 18 years old and its harvest is managed manually at the end of October. The white wine making, with fermentation in barrique in order to give structure and six months aging, is concluded by other 24 months maturation in the bottle.
