SESSION 2: MEET THE PRESS (Pressing)

One week after primary fermentation, you will return and press the wine from the must utilizing a traditional hydraulic wine press. The free run wine and pressed wine will be pumped into a 53 gallon American oak barrel and you will insert a fermentation “bung” into the “bung hole” and the aging process will begin. (Duration: 1 hour)
