Due to the different altitudes and climatology, the vineyards of each location have different dates of optimal ripening and are individually harvested. Each vineyard is farmed following the strict guidelines of the winemakers throughout the year, without herbicides or chemical fertilizers, short prunings and with all farming operations focused on quality.
The age of the vineyards ranges between 40 and 100 years old with very low yield and exceptional quality.
