The Crush

The first step in our winemaking is to crush and destem the grapes.  Wherever you source your grapes from, try to set up or rent a destemmer if they do not have one.  The shop we bought our grapes from provided one (St. Louis Wine and Beermaking).  If you have ever destemmed grapes by hand you'll certainly rent one the next time.  Just something to remember!


Here is a quick video of us crushing and destemming our first box.
