Wine Fun

Harvest Time at the winery is fun but super hard work! This is an idea...
This was a day where we sorted 10 tons of grapes such as Merlot, Malbec and Cab franc. These are Merlot grapes. So the grapes go from the large Tupperware looking containers which have been picked by hand from the vine. Then they make the journey across a sorting table where all the yucky stuff is picked out by hand. By yucky stuff I mean anything from leaves to spiders. Some grapes get de-stemmed such as. Then individual grapes get to be crushed to make the beautiful juice to make wine!
