Harvest Preppers, Part 2
Barrels are key to every harvest, but they require a lot of prep work to get them ready for the job. They need to be shipped from France, loaded on a truck, unloaded at the winery, checked for quality of workmanship, laid on a rack, swelled, and rinsed before they are ready to receive freshly pressed juice or wine. Here we have Manny, Scott, and Luis from team Duckhorn racking up new Nadalie barrels.
