Another cinematic snapshot from this year’s harvest 🎥!

Sorting the grapes at La Tour Melas, to produce red wines of superior quality! A very important process before vinification!

The process:

>> We select the best quality grapes (the uniformly riped ones, no rotten ones, no raisined/dry berries) on a sorting table, usually of 6-8 people.

>> This is followed by the de-stemming of the grapes, i.e. separating the stems from the berries and removing the berries.

>> Finally we sort the berries on a second vibrating sorting table of 6-8 people, to remove unwanted berries (green, raisined/dry ones).

To be continued 😉..
