The cellars OF FAMILY BERTA
The cellars of Berta have changed considerably over the past two centuries, the most recent taking place in 2001, in which the latest part of the cellar for the fermentation of musts and wines was constructed. Equipped with stainless steel and fiberglass tanks, the structure has been built with materials of modern design for their good thermal and acoustic insulation, while considerably increasing the ease of maintenance and cleaning processes.
The traditional method of the Berta family is to use only the indigenous yeasts from the grape.
The aging of the wine takes place in the oldest part of the cellar. It is a place full of charm, where the history of the successive generations of men and women can be felt in the transformation of wine. Built on the north side of the house, semi-underground and with three small windows to ensure a constant temperature throughout the year, the right degree of humidity, and very little light; all factors determining the correct maturation and conservation of stored wine.
The barrels are made of wood while having capacites ranging from 25 hl to 38 hl. Some date back to the early 1900s, while the most recent were purchased in 2002. Also very important and influential is the type of wood used, namely oak, chestnut and acacia, each with different features and qualities.
The diversity of the premises allows the best production and maturation of all wine products.
From the basement there is direct access to the tasting room where, in an incomparable atmosphere, you can savor and enjoy all the Berta wines, together with various local cuisine specialties of the area.
