      ... staying that afternoon. The cellars were built in the 11th century and was pretty cool. They don't crush the grapes and rely on gravity to squeeze all the juice out in massive concrete vats that were hundreds of years old. Twice a day during the fermentation period the juice is removed from the bottom and pumped back on top to help with the breakdown of juice.
