Yesterday, Gary and I went to the Duplin Winery in Rose Hill NC, about an hour and a half drive from Raleigh. It was a very interesting tour of the winery, about an hour or two and we learned alot about their wine making process.
< here is what their crates of wine look like at the warehouse
this is one of the stages of getting the skins, seeds, debris, etc off the grapes . . .
< there were several rooms full of these vats, for fermenting the wine at regulated temperatures depending on the type of wine
< this is where they blow CO2 in the bottles to remove any oxygen before filling them
here is where the bottles get labels on the front and back of the bottles . . .
