At the end of August, harvesting is done by hand and the grapes are sent to the cellar. After a soft press of the grapes, vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature not exceeding 17 °C/63° F.

In the beginning of March, the sparkling wine is made according to the Charmat Method. The Charmat method is a sparkling winemaking process that traps bubbles in wine via carbonation in large steel tanks. This technique is also called metodo Italiano, the Marinotti method, the tank method, or cuve close.
