The soil of the area is limestone and the climate is characterised by temperature contrasts between the daytime, when it is very hot, and the nighttime, very cold. The yield of the vineyards is very low, and the productions never exceed 4,500kg per hectare.
To produce Resalte Vendimia Seleccionada the grape is destemmed and gently pressed. It is then vatted and an alcoholic fermentation begins at a low and controlled temperature, followed by a maceration that lasts from 18 to 20 days. Once vinification is complete, the wine spends from 10 to 12 months aging in 500 litre French oak barrels.
