Hi Alice

if you macerate your wine on the skins forever in qvevri, don't you need to press? how is that done. i did a 5-month maceration and still needed to press. thanks. -michael

Hi Michael, I actually was meaning this TFL-

There's either pressing off the gunk (into a press wine) or the still juicy crap goes straight to the potstill. A pump is often used to get it out of the Q, but sometimes it's just a bucket.

My Photo
I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
