The grapes from old vines are taken to the winery in plastic boxes. On arrival in the winery they are rigorously inspected on a sorting table. The grapes with their stems are then slightly crushed and transferred to a traditional stone tank (lagar) where they are foot trodden. After this, the grape spirit is added to stop the fermentation and fortify the wine.
