PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION OF WINE
The Domaine Valfont rosé wine is produced in a region located on the east of Lambesc. The area has been owned by Castinel family for over 50 years. It consists of 27 hectares of vineyards divided into appellation Coteaux d'Aix en Provence, Country wines, and few acres of olive groves. The field is mechanically harvested under cover of darkness during late August in order to shield the grapes from the heat of the sun. The grapes are then separated, and part of the harvest undergoes direct pressing, while the other part is macerated during 7 - 8 hours at low temperature of 7° to 8°C. The two streams of wine liquids then are captured in stainless steel tanks, and further processed by static racking. Hard fermentation lasts around 8-10 days at low temperature of 14°C. This technique enables the preservation of aromas. The Domaine Valfont rosé wine expresses its character perfectly within two years after the harvest.
