Racking

Take a Minute: Racking from Parrish Family Vineyard on Vimeo.

There are 3 times lees racking is done in wine making...

1st racking - Grape solids that are in the tanks

2nd racking - Done 2 to 3 months later in the barrel, lees usually are dead yeast cells and some leftover grape sediment

3rd racking - Happens at the very end of barrel aging, tend to be long-chain tannins that fall out of solution
