Grape Stomping

We didn't need to clean our feet for this project, the grapes were stomped by a machine. Nick and Arthur placed the grapes in the machine and it squashed the grapes but pretty much left the whole fruit intact. The reason for keeping the grapes fairly intact is because later they will take out the grapes skins and use them to make ouzo and the juice that comes out will be wine. As you can see from the last photo the alcohol content is already at 13 and we haven't even started the fermenting action yet.
Stay tuned for more homemade wine making stories.
