Pressing

Today the wine is being pressed to separate the liquid wine from the grape skins and pips.   Ben is in the wine vat shoveling the must out into the press. Andrew is ready to operate the press.

Filling the press

Next the wine is stored in maturation vessels (like barrels) for the next few months, to allow favours to develop.
