WINE STORAGE

 

After harvest, the wine is fermented in small batches, separated by grape variety and by plot, picking date and pressing. Each batch is a totally separated entity to be controlled and selected, thus avoiding any kind of risks in the process. In the aging process the wine is aged in French oak barrels during 8 – 10 months.

The bottle-aging process is then initiated for periods between 10 and 24 months, depending on the wine, in a dark and temperature-controlled cellar at 54º Fahrenheit. The development of the wines and the corks are periodically controlled.

OUR WINEMAKER

 

A&A’s vintner is David Gonzalez, the renowned winemaker of Santa Alicia Wine Co. and Concha y Toro. With over 30 years of world-class experience, Gonzalez ensures the quality of A&A’s premium reds.

The history of wine extends over more than 8,000 years. Yet, over just the last twenty years, we have seen significant technological changes in premium production. For this reason, we believe that A&A was born at the right time– a moment when wine is being brought to its fullest perfection.
