When the grapes are at their peak of maturity, vibrating fingers of the grape harvester shake the fruit from the vines. The grapes are transfered to the crusher and pressed into "must, a combination of juice, skins and pulp. Although the flavor of wine begins in the vineyards, the winemaker's artistic talent is necessary for proper aging and blending. The must goes through a dejuicer immediately. The juice is then clarified and placed into fermenting tanks, where a special strain of yeast is added to begin fermentation. Fermentation time can vary from one week to over a month. Fermenting tanks are made of stainless steel, which is much better for converting the must to wine without losing the varietal character of the grapes.
