Our construction began by digging out a huge crater of more than 6000 cubic meters to create cellars which will accommodate up to 2000 barrels. The cellars were then totally buried under tons of earth and highly-insulating pumice stone to assure a constant temperature and humidity ideal for the ageing of our Malbec without the use of air conditioning.
We buy our barrels of French oak from Seguin Moreau and Taransaud; we may introduce some American oak in the future.
