The winery itself is at our head office and is set up to control the complete production process, from arrival of the grapes through to vinification, maturation and bottling always paying particular attention to every fine detail. For bottling the winery has a state of the art bottling line, with a capacity of up to 7,000 bottles per hour.
There is storage capacity for around 160,000 hectolitres and the whole facility is equipped with the latest technology included automated pneumatic presses for gentle pressing and various methods of vinification such as traditional, rotary and pistons systems for cap management. All fermentations are carried out in stainless steel.
For maturation, the period varies with the style of wine – 1 year for Ripasso and 2 for Amarone – using stainless steel tanks and oak casks, mainly large. The storage capacity in barrel is around 13,000hl though this will increase with completion of our new underground cellar, designed for ageing wine in tank and casks.
