Cydonia is produced by cryo concentration. The quinces are mashed after harvesting and quickly frozen afterwards. The mash is then slowly thawed outdoors at negative temperatures, where the frost binds the water in the mash, while the sugar, acid, aroma and color drips like a thick raw syrup. After thawing, the concentrated "quince syrup" is cold fermented through 18 months to an intense wine.

Cryo concentration definitely gives cold hands, but the technique is still the mainstay of our apple-, pear- and quince wine. This technique allow us to extract the aroma, the sky-high sugar contents while preserving the intense acidity from the fruit in our wines.
