Winemaking

A pied de cuve is done to guarantee the quality of the indigenous fermentation in vats that are assembled by the winery's cooper. This is completely unique to Bodegas Muga. The wines are macerated and ferment in these vats and are transferred to barrels assembled at the winery for ageing.

Ageing

26 months in barrels with French oak chosen and assembled into barrels by Muga’s cooper. 12 months in bottle after egg white fining.

Comments
