Organic wine processing Château Romanin Alpilles IGT white
The bio-dynamic way of working is not new to the Château Romanin, as it was already introduced in 1988. Different soil conditions in the vineyards of the Château Romanin make it necessary to decide at the time of vines planting which grape variety is most suitable for which type of soil. This, together with low yields, is crucial for producing high quality organic wines later on. Obviously, it was decided correctly. No less important for the achievement of fine drops is a careful work in the vineyard. This includes pruning in winter, binding shoots in spring and thinning shoots and grapes during growth and ripening. In the bio-dynamic viticulture, but also in the bio-dynamic winemaking all activities are carried out in a certain state of the stars. In the basement, the intervention in the natural history is limited to a minimum. The stems and panicles are separated from the berries, which are easily crushed and macerated at a cold temperature. The fermentation then follows spontaneously with endogenous yeasts that are on the berries. After that, the young wine matures for several months in stainless steel tanks. In the spring of the following year, the white organic wine is only slightly filtered, sulphurized and bottled.
