The last two days have been filled with Pump-Overs (pumping juice from the bottom to the top of the tank to mix the juice and give red grapes color) and falling asleep. I say that because there are two ways of doing this. One is by device and the other by hand. By hand can be exhausting due to the fact that you are hurrying up just to wait 30 to 45 to 60 minutes until pump over is done. The device is really nice because it frees up an extra body to do other things.

We would pump-over a tank three times a day. And when you’ve got 6-7 tanks going, it still takes a long time to complete. The first day it took 11hrs, even with 4-5 devices running. Sorta shatters the idea of an 8hr workday…
