We got a tour of the campus winery today in Introduction to Winemaking.

The Teaching Winery

The teaching winery is used to teach volume production of wines. It's still low volume, but much bigger than the few gallons produced at a time in the research winery.

The big fermentation tanks The crusher-destemmer The wine press - a pneumatic bladder press.

The Research Winery

The research winery is used for smaller scale research production of wines. A lot of small (2-3 gallon) samples of wine can be produced in parallel here.
