Racking is transferring the must, juice or wine from one vessel to another. We use our gentle pump to help us do the racking. Racking happens many times during the winemaking process
The process of racking also helps remove the fermenting must from the worst sediments.
We do a first racking a few days into the fermentation. When the fermentations are done, we rack the wines destined for barrel ageing into their new wooden homes, where they will rest for 6 to 12 months. The fresh and unoaked fruit-driven beauties are kept in steel tanks and are sometimes racked from one tank to another.
