Racking and Oaking using Flextanks and Xoakers

This is the initial racking of our 2018 Pinot Noir.  As you can see we use gravity to transfer from one container to another.  This initial racking removes the dead yeast that was not filtered out during the press process.

Since we don’t use oak barrels…we use Frend Oak Medium Plus Xoakers to add spice and flavor to our wine.  We don’t use barrels since our process is much easier to replicate without the variable that barrels bring to the process.
