In this stage of mixing two or more varieties of vines, the winery’s oenologist, as a technical specialist in viticulture, is in charge of choosing and testing which grape varieties are going to combine in the most harmonious and surprising way possible to captivate the palate of lovers of red, white, rosé wines and premium cavas.
