Our Winemaking Process
Aretousa Wines follows a meticulous winemaking process to ensure that their wines are of the highest quality.
Harvesting: The grapes are harvested by hand at the optimal time to ensure they are at their peak ripeness.
Sorting: The grapes are then sorted by hand to ensure that only the best grapes are used in the winemaking process.
Crushing and Destemming: The grapes are crushed and destemmed to separate the juice from the skins and stems.
Fermentation: The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tanks using natural yeasts to ensure that the unique flavors and aromas of the grapes are preserved.
Aging: The wines are aged in oak barrels for a period of time to enhance their complexity and add depth to their flavors.
Blending: The winemakers carefully select the best barrels to blend the wines and achieve the desired flavor profile.
Bottling: The wines are then bottled and aged further in the bottle to ensure that they are ready to drink when released.
Throughout the entire process, Aretousa Wines follows sustainable and organic practices to ensure that their wines are not only of the highest quality but also environmentally friendly.
