Cabernet Sauvignon processing

Seven Hills Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, just over two tons in the house!

This morning just over two tons of Seven Hills Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon came into the Locati Cellars winery.  Jason and I got on it right away; it took longer to clean the machine than it did to crush the fruit.  But beautiful fruit it was, clean with minimal leaves to pick out.

Cheers!

Inside the destemmer, from the top hopper, the grapes fall through the holes and the stems get caught up and pushed out of the end I am looking into.

Through the destemmer and crusher, into the fermenting bin.
