Vineyards & Cellar
At the Crusher
We usually pick our grapes by hand and then use bins to transport them to the winery. This gentle method ensures the minimum of damage to the grapes.
|35KB||We tip the bins out directly into the Crusher/De-stemmer.|
|39KB||This machine first separates the stems from the grapes and then lightly crushes the berries, without damaging the seeds.|
|27KB||One Spätburgunder bunch before and after de-stemming.|
|The destemmed and crushed grapes look like this (left) and in the case of red wine, will be fermented like this (fermentation on skins).
Our white wines are normally pressed directly following crushing/de-stemming.
|This is one of our two Presses. We use this one for our white wines. The other is for our red wines
(See: Elaboration of Red Wine)
After pressing, the white must will be pumped to a tank for settling.
