What am I: Prototipo Pet Nat is a hand-harvested and artisanally crafted sparkling wine made in the "ancestral" method, otherwise known as a Pet Nat. After being destemmed, the grapes are mechanically pressed and the juice is slowly separated from the must. Fermentation occurs naturally in stainless steel tanks at room temperature. The wine is bottled and refermentation takes place without adding any additional yeast or sugar. It does not go through the process of dégourgement, and so maintains the presence of yeast inside the bottle.
