In anticipation of bottling Monday we have been racking wine from barrels into tanks, and then filtering from tank to tank. Cleaning is the key, clean tanks, clean barrels, clean all of the equipment necessary to move the wine, and then reclean during and after filtering. The smell of wine permeates the air as the residue from the bottom of the barrels drains away: Sangiovese, Barbera, and a barrel of Cab Sauv, delightful. Enjoy your day, after class I will be bottling today. Cheers!
