Folie a Deux Crush Fantasy


Stagecoach Crush by Crush Crusader

Today the crush began of the Stagecoach Cab.  We started around 5:20am, going nice and slow to not let any excess leaves or stems enter the pump.  I started by working the forklift, lifting the grapes into the hopper and then setting up a rack and return, then a pumpover, then back to the shaker table.

After nine bins into a tank, we dumped 4 more into the fermenting bins.

The wheels are for the barrels for pump overs

Then finshed off the remaining four bins into the tank.  I’m really excited to see how this wine will turn out.
