All the grapes are harvested in boxes and fermented in the cellar. The grape, which manages to transmit the characteristics of the climate of the area, is unstemmed when arriving at the facilities of the winery and is allowed to macerate in cold. The obtained wort, from which Atlan & Artisan 8 Vents is born, is then fermented in open tanks at controlled temperature. Atlan & Artisan 8 Vents finishes the winemaking phase, resting for 16 months in French oak barrels. After malolactic fermentation in barrels they select the blend for the final wine and age it further in French oak.
