Basket press

Just to show that you don’t need high-tech equipment to make wine, here are some photos of us pressing our Syrah and Carignan. We used an old basket press, borrowed from our neighbour Didier, which is perfect for small batch winemaking. We tasted the wine every minute or so and stopped as soon as the tannins became too harsh.
