Disgorgement

At this point “disgorgement of wine” is carried out. The disgorgement of a sparkling wine is the removal of the lees that have gathered at the neck of the bottle. It can be done in two ways:

  • à la glace: cooling/freezing the bottle neck and making the plug of frozen lees pop out – mechanical method,
  • à la volée: removing the plug by hand– manual method.

After disgorgemenof wine, the bottle is topped up with quality wine and sugars, every sparkling wine producer having its own secret recipe. This is an extremely important finishing touch that gives each bottle of Trentodoc its special personality.
