It starts at the end of August and extends till the end of October. It is usually carried out manually and the grapes are transported to the winery in boxes containing 25-30 kgs or in small stainless steel trailers when the vineyard is close to the winery.
Grapes are harvested at night to avoid high temperatures and premature fermentations. They are quickly transported to the winery and refrigerated at 10ºC to avoid the color of the skins dyeing the must. Once the must is pressed and each variety has fermented separately at a constant 16ºC to preserve its primary aromas, the must is blended and bottled along with the base wine, to which the yeast and sugar are added to produce the formation of bubbles. For the second fermentation, the bottles are stored in underground cellars at a constant 15º-17ºC where they are in contact with their lees.
