Our winemaking process for Terra d’Oro Moscato is dramatically different from our other wines. The grapes are destemmed and crushed to stainless steel tanks and left overnight before pressing. Referred to as the “cap and drain” method, the majority of whole berries float atop the tank. This delivers more varietal intensity. After gentle pressing, seventy percent of the juice is inoculated with yeast. The balance of sweet juice is stored at very low temperatures. Only by eventually blending dry wine with sweet juice are we able to achieve such balance.
