Winery Equipment Testimonial:

"Upgrading your winery from 1000 cases per year to 3000 to 5000 can be a daunting task. The choices in winery equipment, capacity and price vary all over the place.  The great thing about Ryan is, having been a wine maker for years, he knows how to design things from start to finish. When I harvested my first ten tons of the year at 6:30 a.m., Ryan and his staff were there making sure everything was working correctly. I knew I had made a good decision."

  4. Check that fermentation is in progress
  5. Check the wine for dryness
  6. Determine when the wine should be drawn off
  7. Check progress of fermentation
  8. Calculate how much sugar is needed to give a required alcohol strength
  9. Check that wine is not too dry, which ruins flavor, fullness and keeping quality
  10. Working out incremental sugar dosing of strong wine (if to much is added at one time fermentation will be inhibited)
  11. Check sugar content at start of fermentation, following up to see when fermentation has ceased
