Crushing your favorites!
The time has come where Gary and Carol start the process of turning tons of beautiful grapes into the delicious wine you can take home in a couple years. Grapes arrive in the morning from vineyards in Calaveras County and Amador County to find eager volunteers at Zucca's crush pad. The grapes are dumped on a table (as seen above) to allow us to hand sort and remove any bad bunches of grapes so only the best grapes will be used. From there, the grape must (juice, skins, seeds and some stems) ferment for a week at the winery before it is pressed and the juice is moved to barrels or stainless steel tanks.
