Regram from @egonmullerscharzhof : We are proud that we can still use this amazing, old basket press. There is no better way to press our nobel rot selections very gentle, to receive a pure and clear juice. #scharzhof #scharzhofberg #scharzhofberger #egonmüller #egonmuller #saarriesling #moselsaarruwer #vdp #primumfamiliaevini #pfv #rieslingrocks #oldbasketpress #basketpress #nobelrot #botrytis Picture by @chrismarmann #PFV #primumfamiliaevini #FamilyIsSustainability

This post is a two in one! Explanation of a basket press 🧺🔽 AND a fun winemaker 👩🏻‍🌾story.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is a photo we took at le petit domaine in the Languedoc 🇫🇷while we were tasting through his wines 🍷at his home/winery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Behind the wines you'll notice a basket press in the background. These are used in the traditional way of extracting juice from the grape 🍇skins. They are more gentle on the grapes and create a really nice "cake" 🎂from the grapes that can be used to feed animals or mulch or lots of other things!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This one is special because guess who Aurelian Petit bought it from? ....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Marc Castan from Domaine Mamaruta! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's a very small 🌏 natural wine world and this picture 🖼 is a really fun representation of that!

The pressing of wine with our basket press has become one of my favorite wine making responsibilities that we do together. This year seemed so much easier than last year and we’re still trying to fully understand why that is. It’s a day of of work that has become pretty enjoyable. Experiencing the beauty of pressing grapes is magical. Have you had the opportunity to participate or watch a basket press do it’s thing?

marshmallowwines. I promised you that I will speak about the fabulous  100 points wines

I promised you that I will speak about the fabulous 100 points wines served to a fantastic dinner last saturday in the hotel Louis C. Jacobs in Hamburg, organised by the fine wine merchant Carl Tesdorpf. First I want to present you: 🍇 1986 Castillo Ygay Blanco Rioja Gran Reserva Especial Marques de Murrieta. 🍇 Marques de Murrieta is a legend in Spain. The bodega produced the first wine in the middle of the 19th century. It was the first bodega exporting Rioja in bottles, not in casks. 1983 the bodega was bought by the Count of Creixell, who exchanged his comfortable desk in Madrid with the hard work in the vineyards. He invested a lot to renovate vineyards and winery, but he is working till today with a historic basket press - an important building block for the unique style of Murrieta. 🍇 Castillo Ygay is also a legend. This 1986 is one of the most notable and most unique whitewines of the world. Some facts about the history of production: a blend of 97% Viura and 3% Malvasia - aged 21 years in casks - then aged 6 years in cement tanks before bottling. 🍇 Today it is a damned great wine! It has a young lemon yellow colour. The nose is infinitely fine first with flavours of Lemon, mushrooms, Lemongrass and lemon Verbena, later Caramell and Vanilla, again later springflowers - it changes from minute to minute in your glass. Very impressive! 🍇 On the palate it is super elegant with a very well integrated fresh accidity and an unbelievable and mouthfilling texture of flavours and a fantastic length. And a wonder happens in your glass - the wine becomes younger and younger! Unbelievable! This wine is a flawless beauty! You can enjoy this wine over the next 50 years! 🍇 The next wines of this notable dinner coming soon! Stay tuned and have a nice evening! . . . #marquesdemurrieta #malvasia #whitewineblend #rioja #winefromspain #spanishwine #castilloygay #granreserva #100points #100pts #louiscjacob #carltesdorpf #winemerchant #rarewines #finewine #1986 #basketpress #winedinner #finedining #winefordinner #whitewinelover #riojalovers #whiterioja #greatwhitewine #hamburg #elbchaussee #winelegend #flawlessbeauty #wineoclock

The gorgeous old stone buildings of Rockford Winery date back to the early settlers of the Barossa Valley. Rockies is definitely one of my favorite vineyards in the Barossa. The Alicante is sublime & their flagship Basket Press Shiraz & Sparkling Shiraz are up there with the worlds best in my humble opinion #rockfordwines #rockfordbasketpress #barossavalley #barossawine #alicante #sparklingshiraz #basketpress #shiraz #wineconnoisseur #epicurean #travel #travelphotography #wanderlust

GRAPE PRESSING: I've seen lots of different kinds of presses through visiting wineries but nothing is more traditional than basket presses (this is from an old winery in Beaujolais). Scroll down to learn about this style of pressing and why some winemakers choose to keep it old school. . Basket presses are the most traditional form of pressing grapes. They're also known as "vertical presses" or "Champagne presses". . The "basket" is filled up with grapes and the machine at the top applies pressure from above. The juice from the grapes then runs through the gaps on the side of the basket and collected by the tray located @ the bottom of the basket press. . Oxygen exposure can't be avoided via basket presses the way other presses are able to minimize. . Some winemakers choose to still use basket presses because they are gentler than pneumatic presses, but they're capacity is much more limited and labor intensive. Only small premium wineries use basket presses. . Have you guys ever seen a basket press before? . . . #winemaking #wset #wsetdiploma #pressing #grapepressing #grapepress #winemakingoptions #winemaker #vigneron #wine #wineo #winestagram #winelover #winetime #verticalpress #basketpress #champagnepress #frenchwine #viticulture #winetime #wineallthetime #wineoptions #premiumwine #smallwineries #smallwinery

(English 🔻) 🇸🇰 Práca v pivnici môže byť fyzicky náročná aj veľmi lahká. A často je veľmi zdĺhavá. :) Rýchle je asi len otváranie fliaš. 😀 Najviac času zvyčajne zaberie umývanie pred tým ako ideme niečo robiť, a potom ako sme to urobili. 😀 Umývať treba debničky, mlynkoodstopkovač, plastové kade, betónovú kaďu, demižóny, tanky, sudy, kýble, sitá, lieviky, dlhé hadice, krátke hadičky, plničku, hevery, miešadlá, štuple... Kolotoč umývania sa nikdy nezastaví. 😀 Aj lis treba umývať, a to si práve chystá na videu náš milovínsky Tomáš. Umýval lis už toľkokrát, že sa mu na jeseň o tom asi už aj sníva. 😁 ... 🇬🇧 Work in the cellar can be both exhausting and easy. A lot of the time it's quite tedious. :) A fair share of the work is just washing stuff before we do some actual work and after we finish the work. 😁 We wash crates, plastic vats, our cement vat, demijohns, tanks, barrels, buckets, seives, funnels, hoses, stirrers, stoppers... the cleaning never ends. 😀 The basket press needs a lot of cleaning after use and that is what Tomas is prepping in the video. He's cleaned the press so many times over the years that he's probably having dreams about it every winemaking season. 😁 ... #pivnica #lisovanie #winecellar #winemakingprocess #basketpress #winelovers #orangewine #naturalwine #naturalwinelovers #artisanwine #winelove #winetasting #winery #instawine #sommelier #winemaker #wineo #winepic #femalewinemaker #timeforwine #wein #naturwein #vino #somelier #slovenskevino #vinarstvo #milujemvino #naturalnewino #winesofslovakia #vinonaturale

You may recall Alexi Christidis of @chalariwines? He was named in the Top 50 YGOW winemakers earlier this year. He's in the mix for the 2020 YGOW Awards... Q. What bottle changed the way you think about wine? A. A group of us chipped in for a bottle of Chateau Lafite Rothschild from 1970. Not expecting it to be in good nick we were surprised at the quality and incredible primary fruit still in such an old bottle of wine. I realized that there aren’t a lot of things that can be captured in time and looked at down the track. This is pretty amazing. Q. Where are you at on your wine journey? A. Still early days but loving getting out there and showing people our wines. Gathering a following and trying to buy a vineyard and a new press to get it moving! Q. Which of your wines best defines what you’re about? A. I think the Vermentino this year defines what we are about. This is a skin contact wine, but it’s done at low temp and low pH so we don’t get the orange colour and the oxidation. A nice blend of minimal intervention winemaking, something a bit different, but using the knowledge and processes learnt over time to ensure the quality is there. Q. What wine lesson did you learn the hard way? A. Don’t move a basket press with a forklift without ensuring its balanced….they are heavy and crack concrete slabs very easily… Q. If you could plant any grape variety anywhere, what would it be and where? A. Riesling in Porongorup, or Vermentino on Rottnest Island 😊 Q. What’s the soundtrack in the winery? A. 80’s glam rock for shiz Q. What's your favourite Wineslinger? A. Loving @madalenas.bar in Freo at the moment. Q. What's bringing you a lot of joy in wine right now? A. Meeting all the other great winemakers during the YGOW events, learning and having fun with it. #YGOW #SwanValley #thejoyofwine
