A key part of the processing of our grapes.
We have a magical and highly sophisticated machine that removes the berries from the stems really gently.
We simply feed the clusters to this trusted friend after hand sorting at the table, and it spits out stems in one basket and beautiful berries into either press or tank.
The quality of our destemmer is extraordinarily high and this ensures not only a very gentle process but also a very precise one that’s adjustable from one grape variety to another.
Removing the stems gives us more friendly wines with less astringent tannins. Happy wines that our family members can enjoy even when young.
