Washington #Merlot being processed at Hawks View

A quick video of the Washington Merlot we processed on Monday, October 1st at Hawks View Cellars. We processed 22,000 lbs or 11 tons of grapes this day. What you see here are the grapes coming in, which have been hand picked. We then hand process them by removing any leaves or bad grapes- such as dried grapes of grapes that are not in good shape- then it is destemmed with the machine. The grapes are separated from the stem and the stem leaves from the top part and the grapes, the size of blueberries leave through the side shoot.

Photo: 11 tons of dime-sized Washington Merlot passed through these hands today! I'm exhausted!

The merlot we processed was smaller than a dime!
