The winemaking philosophy is classic – it is about respecting the fruit, with vinification and élèvage serving to define a style that should exalt elegance and complexity, with good fruit and freshness, balanced minerality, alcohol and tannins.
Colombo’s winery is housed in the heart of Cornas and it is here that all of their northern Rhône wines are vinified. Southern Rhône wines are made in state-of-the-art facilities in Vinsobres.
In Cornas, modern stainless steel tanks are used for vinification. Wines are aged in barrels at the same site and also in a separate barrel hall just outside of the village.
After careful ageing, wines are bottled at Colombo’s own local facilities which are next to their state-of-the-art oenology laboratory.
