In the cellar

A cellar is the heart that drives our winery. Also here, deep down below the earth, nature has the last say.

A wisdom of winemaking is to monitor the potential of each individual vintage and variety, and at the same time to let the vintage develop its own qualities - this is the most demanding thing. At this moment books and statistics fall short, and the experience which are brought from one generation to another count most. Intergenerational passing of knowledge is not always without sparks, and so new ideas are born. For some of them you realise later that they have 100-year old roots.
