The tour covers the “Story of the Grape” including a brief overview/crash course of how a grape gets into the bottle. The tour “story” starts with the grapes arriving on the crush pad, then into fermentation vessels (tanks or bins), then aging/lees contact (tanks or barrels), then polishing (filtering and fining), & then finishes with bottling.
