Why is wine expensive? These trucks get 11-12 mpg when loaded with a ton of grapes. Stops at the gas station are frequent.
This is actually the finished must after processing at Big Basin. I was on the sorting table, Stef was watching for any final sorting issues going into bin.
The sun came up over the east mountains as we drove to the vineyard.
Truck, bins and tubs ready to get started.
Stefania in the back of the truck with me sorting. We sort into the picking bins, then again into the 1/2 ton bins, then on a sorting table, and finally on a shacking table. Four sorts in all, and this is after going through the vineyard before harvest and removing problem grapes.
Joe at Big Basin gets a weight for us on a bin. We brought in just over 3200 pounds, or about 4 barrels.
