Production process(growing and winemaking)

Hand-selected grapes collected in the vineyards of the Son Dagueta farm in Porreres (Majorca).

Grapes are harvested in 15-20-kg boxes so to prevent overpressures and squeezing. They are immediately taken to the cellar, where they are stored in a cold chamber under 5º C for 24-48 hours before the winemaking in order to control the temperature, from the reception until the end of the cycle, and prevent early or uncontrolled fermentation.

Traditional winemaking methods without adding yeast or lactic acid bacteria. Ecological and biodynamic production (according to DEMETER standards). Fermentation and ageing at controlled temperature.
