OUR WINE CELLAR
Our wine cellar is built into the hillside. Before vinification, the grapes are mercilessly sorted out by hand and optical selection machine. The wines of the SOPRA line are aged in new barriques for two years. We also use batonnage. In the wine cellar we work with indigenous yeasts and without filtering. Modern technology paired with careful manual work help us to achieve the best possible quality.
The inside of the cellar is divided into three zones: vinification, aging and the storage area . For a perfect processing we control the temperature and the room climate with natural methods, storage is in air-conditioned enviroment.
Sustainability is important to us. We have installed a photovoltaic power plant on the south facing roof of the wine cellar to cover a part of our energy consumption. The rainwater collected from the roofs and from the drainage of the vineyards are carried into a water reservoir and are used for the treatments in the vineyard and the cleaning of the agricultural vehicles.
