BEFORE THE SEA
INTRODUCING WINE OF THE SEA - BEFORE THE SEA
Wines selected for submersion are among the world’s finest even before entering the Adriatic, but not every fine wine is made to be submerged. Each wine selected fits a specific set of characteristics that make it a qualified candidate for this aging process.
Each bottle is equipped with a special composite cork and sealed with two layers of wax ensuring that the bottles allow nothing to enter them while submerged.
UNDER THE SEA
THE STAGE THAT GIVES THE WINE ITS NAME
The bottles are placed 100-feet below the water’s surface. The conditions at these depths make nature’s greatest wine cellar.
- Temperatures are consistently cool
- Zero light from the sun is able to reach the bottles
- Aging is intensified and accelerated under tremendous pressure
- Waves keep the bottles in motion, forcing molecular breakdown for a constant smoothing of the wine
Each bottle spends a minimum of one year under water, depending on what variety of wine is submerged. Some bottles are left to age for as many as two years.
