Chardonnay Grapes.

Cabernet Franc Grapes.
These grapes are growing on garden vines adjacent to the Seth Ryan Winery and Vineyards.

The crush at John H. Bookwalter Winery begins here as grapes are dumped from the bin to a conveyor on the way to the stemmer-crusher.

Workers sort the grapes and reject those that don't meet their quality requirements.

From the sorting belt, the grapes drop into the stemmer.


Out of the stemmer, the grapes drop into the crusher.

The crushed grapes and juice are pumped through this hose to fermentation.

The crushed grapes and juice reach the liquid-cooled stainless steel fermentation tank.

Crushed grapes, called "must" sitting in a vat.

Reminds me a bit of your posting from the printing museum, in that it is a learning experience as well as a treat for the eyes.
