The essential part of the vinification process of Talha Wines remained the same used by the Romans until today. Generally speaking, the crushed grapes are placed inside the clay pots (Amphora) and fermentation occurs spontaneously. During the fermentation process, the grapes skin that rises to the surface form a solid layer that must be stirred with a wooden squeegee and forced to go down dip to the masses, in order to give more colour, aromas and flavors to the wine. After the fermentation process finishes, the masses settle on the bottom of the clay where the pot has a hole from where the wine passes through and the masses serve as a filter and the liquid is pure and clear. It is a simple and natural process, as much as the wine that results from it.
