The climate is dry and soil is clay-loam, deep with pebbles 13 feet from the surface. Irrigation is traditional, with water from the Andes Mountains and groundwater. he selection massale vines are simple Guyot pruned and produce medium-sized clusters, with loose and fine grains.

Grapes from all parcels were hand picked during the first fifteen days of April ,carried to the winery in boxes to prevent them from breaking and refrigerated for 24 hours. Hand sorted and destemmed, the juice was gravity fed into small concrete tanks and spontaneously fermented by the native yeasts of our terroir. During fermentation, regular punch downs and pump overs are done to improve aroma, color and tannin extractions. Vatting lasted 28 days. Pomace was separated from the new wine using a vertical basket press. Malolactic fermentation occurred spontaneously in tanks and then the barrels were filled to begin the aging process.
Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
