Dona Paterna

For the vinification of Dona Paterna sparkling wine, the Alvarinho grapes used are carefully selected from vineyards with low sugar concentration and fresh acidity. The high quality must obtained is fermented at a controlled temperature in order to obtain a correct base. Once stabilized and filtered, it is bottled for a second fermentation according to the classic method. The ideal cellar conditions (4.5 meters below ground level) keep the temperatures low and constant for ideal fermentation for several months, thus preserving the characteristics of the Alvarinho variety. It is only then that we proceed to the “disgorging” to eliminate the yeasts and to the final bottling.
