About

Founded by Norwegian Dan Odfjell this pre-dominantly red wine producer creates wines of elegance and poise.  Odfjell are fully committed to biodynamics.

The quest of Odfjell is to make wines that are a true expression of the terroir of their vineyards. Their low yield vineyards are handled with individual care, where they handpick the grapes bringing the fruit to the cellar as intact as possible. They began planting vineyards on the estate over 15 years ago, selecting only red varieties. Today they have 85 hectares.

The grapes were picked and the bunches were destemmed but not crushed. The whole berries then underwent a cold maceration at 14ºC for four to six days prior to fermentation in 40,000-liter tanks using selected and native yeasts, followed by a 10-day post-fermentation maceration at 25ºC. Malolactic fermentation took place spontaneously in tanks.
