Vendemmia 2008, Fattoria Rignana


Here are photos from the harvest and crush of 2008 at Fattoria Rignana - the grapes looked fantastic! These are not in exact order (but close) - I added a little bit of captioning below. Clicking the icons pops up a bigger picture.


This is the chapel at Rignana and one of the vineyards.

The grapes go into the crusher/destemmer, and the fresh juice and skins are pumped right into stainless steel tanks to begin the fermentation. The overpowering smell of the crushed grapes at this point is pretty potent.
