Red Grape Press

Red grapes are pressed with their skins, providing more tannins and antioxidants. Christine, one of the French interns, is adding yeast. Normally this step is more automatic, but yesterday when I took the pictures the machine wasn’t working. The yeast and water was in a large tank with a hose attached to it. Christine was filling up bowfuls and adding them to the wine.
