3 - Wine Terms - Production

1. Racking: A process of siphoning the wine out of a barrel leaving the sediment behind thus clarifying the wine.

2. Bâtonnage: A French term for stirring the yeast cells that settle to the bottom after fermentation to increase the mouthfeel of the wine and add 'yeasty/breaddy' notes to the wine.

3. Pressing: In red wine production the fermented grapes are squeezed to extract the wine from the solids.

Note: In the norther hemisphere, wine is harvest and made into wine in the Fall. In the southern hemisphere wine production is happening now.

2 - Quotes from Me & Others:

1. "Eat what you like, drink what you like, and hang out with people you like -- life isn't that complicated." ~ The Zen Winemaker

2. "Every wine has a purpose; some are meant to be enjoyed, while others are meant to clean your drain." ~ The Zen Winemaker

1 - Question to ponder:

What are three words that others use to describe you?
