Here is a photo of our plate and frame filter equipment, shared by Assistant Winemaker Ben Weaver, while filtering our Riesling wine.
Filtration is one of two common treatments that help finish or polish a wine. Another treatment (that comes before filtering) is fining, which has the potential of changing the phenolics in the wine.
Both treatments occur just prior to bottling and it is our Winemaker and Assistant Winemaker who make the call on which course of action they'll take which each wine.
