Leaf stripping and removal of secondary shoots is carried out at the start of the growing season. Cluster thinning for increased exposure of the grapes to promote ripening is also carried out. The average age of the vines is 15 years and they are planted to a density of 10000 plants per hectare. Harvesting is done by hand.

The winemaking here is traditional, cold maceration and overpumping with aeration, fermentation temperature 28-30°C. Maceration lasts approximately 20 days, malolactic fermentation partially in new casks with racking from cask to cask. Fining is done with egg whites and the wines spend 12-15 months in French oak casks.
