The products of our clients

This drink is prepared with our red grape juice concentrate. It is a bubbly “bitter” with low alcoholic content (6% vol.alcohol), where our grape juice is macerated with traditional digestive herbs and its own carbonic from fermentation. It is an utter luxury to be able to rely on clients who prepare such innovative drinks!

Foliation

The foliation appearance of the leaves occurs in May. The leaves perform vital functions during the grape cycle: transpiration, respiration, and photosynthesis. Acids and sugars are also formed in the leaves, which will then be transported to the vagus and on which the taste and quality of our grape juice will largely depend.

Red grape juice
