Cleaning in the Winery
Harvest time can be romatic and bottling time can be fascinating, but in the in between time there is a lot of cleaning. One of the most important parts of making great wine for you to enjoy is sanitation. So, that is what has been going on in the winery lately.
Here is our winemaker son, Daniel, cleaning the machines that are used to filter the wines.
Old filters are tossed and everything washed and sanitized.
Then there is the silent work going on over in the corner. The wine barrel aging. Most of our red wines are aged in oak for at least 18 months, most for 24 months, and our reserver red wines for 36 months.
I am still looking forward to bottling with labels, bottles, and corks coming in. But for now getting everything clean and in order is best.
