METHOD


The Ancestral Method is a unique winemaking method.
It was certainly used in Champagne which leads the wine to have a greater organoleptic complexity
but it is also thought to be a very old technique perhaps begun in the Aoc Blanquette de Limoux in France.

A light pressing of the grapes is carried out to extract the indigenous yeasts present on the bunches,
followed by fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature, usually at a low temperature.
Here the fermentation is first slowed down and then stopped, preserving a sugar content sufficient
to ensure the recovery of the same after bottling, without further additions of sugars and yeasts.
Enzymes and yeasts closed in the bottle inhibit CO2 creating, as the French say, a slightly sparkling “petillant”.
