Hand Sorting

While multiple rounds of shoot thinning and fruit thinning occur in the vineyard throughout the growing season, a final sorting occurs just prior to grapes being crushed. Grapes arrive at the  upper crushpad, just outside the massive doors to our wine caves, where our winemaking team (and often, family members including young Samantha and Sophia) will hand sort and visually inspect each grape cluster, retaining only those with the most even ripening. This final step in our season-long selection process ensures that only the most promising fruit is de-stemmed and crushed for fermentation.
