Vintage 2012 – Day Twenty-Three

The amphora project continued today, with some more foot stomping and then pressing the juice to rack overnight before being put into the amphora tomorrow. I also used the new markings that I worked on to measure the volume of all the tanks that have wine in them at Nierstein.

Gorgeous view, with leaves changing colour all around.
Lot’s of free run juice from the foot crushing.
Johannes is very happy that his plan is working. He is pressing the grapes for more juice.
An in situ setup in the vineyards where the amphora will live for the next few weeks as the wine ferments.
