Harvesting Dolcetto.

After many hours of handpicking grapes, we arrive back at the winery to begin the magical process of making wine. 
One of many trucks that will arrive with grapes harvested this morning.

The sorting table.

Up the conveyor belt to be destemmed and crushed.

The babo is used to check the brix. Brix is a measurement of the amount of sugar in a liquid. The sugars will convert to alcohol during fermentation.
