All of the apartments, as well as having a bedroom and a bathroom, have a generous kitchen/living room complete with an open fireplace as local traditions dictate. The kitchens are well-equipped with electrical appliances. A WI-FI link is available in the apartments and nearby a PC with Internet connection is at our guests' disposal.

Ours esteemed wines: Our goal of making high quality wines necessitates attentive care in the vineyard. After the winter pruning our work on the vines and soil goes on practically uninterrupted until the second half of July. Then we remove some of the bunches so that the remaining grapes can mature in the best possible circumstances.
The harvest takes places between September and the first half of October. The grapes are picked by hand. Once they have been de-stemmed they undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats. During fermentation the skins tend to rise to the surface. We re-emerge them in the wine, pumping the wine out and performing delestages in order to effect the best maceration of the grapes.
Ours wines are esteemed on world wide and is possible tasting and buy on request.
