We are lucky to have had our friend Kiko help us make the wine for the past two seasons. Kiko grew up making wine at his father’s winery, studied winemaking and has worked in various wineries. We make wine from organic grapes and nothing is added during the wine-making process and no chemicals to the grapes during the growing for truly organic wine.
This blog details the process and if you live nearby and have grapes you can bring us your grapes next year and we will make your own wine for you in exchange for some of the wine.
Step One – Pick the grapes
Step two – Squashing the grapes and separating the stalks
Step four (optional) – Making Jiropega
Step five – Filtering the wine
Step six – Making Aguardente
Step seven – Cleaning the fermentation tank
Step eight – Tasing the wine
Step nine – Making a wine blend
Step ten – ageing the wine
Bottling the wine
Thank you to all the permaculture interns and friends from our growing wine cooperative for being involved. Want to make wine with us next season, then please get in contact.
