The wine making equipment
Manual device for crushing grapes.
The baskets were emptied one by one in this device which was standing by a big open wooden tray. By turning the wheel the must (grape juice)and the broken grapes fell in a tray.
The must and the grapes are transferred to an open big Vat and there they are further crushed by treading on them with bare feet. The must is transferred to barrels to ferment.
The use of oak wood for making wine barrels plays a significant role in winemaking and can have a profound effect on the resulting wine, affecting the color, flavor, tannin profile and texture of the wine.
Also a number of small tools is displayed, like “xestia” (tin measuring containers), bottling tools, corkscrews and bottles/carboys in different sizes.
