The gentle act of separating the juice from the skins and seeds.
There are many different kinds of presses for wine. From the most traditional basket presses to the modern pneumatic press system like ours.
They all work to press the grape must from the solid matters. For the whites and rosés this is done after destemming and crushing in the early stages of winemaking. For the reds this is done after we deem that the wine has macerated long enough on the skins and extracted the colour, aroma and tannins we want.
Our press is highly sophisticated and allows us to press gently and slowly and create even very small batches of grapes individually.
This is key for us with so many different grape varieties and many different plots, unique fermentations and wines.
