The maceration process in red wine

Why red wine is red.
Sometimes they ask me what is the best time to go to a winery and I say always the season we are in. Because I believe that the best moment for going to a winery is always the present…But if you come in harvest you may understand much better wich is the real process of making wine. One of the most important moments for making red wine is the maceration of the grapes. They tell you that it is important that the juice of the grapes gets in contact with the skins in order to obtain most of the characteristics that a red wine is going to have because coloyr, the tanins, the antocians are on the skins and they tell you how they do it. We were lucky to be in a winery in which they did not only told us how the maceration process was, but we saw it for our eyes only. And here it is. Also for your eyes only.
