I’ve read enough resources on making wine at home over the years to make my head spin. Wine making can be extremely confusing as on the one hand we find Westerners making wine in a laboratory/industrial kind of setting with grape crushers, de-stemmers, presses, hydrometers, racking canes, clarifiers, carboys, sanitizing chemicals like sodium metabisulphide and fancy equipment designed for wine making all of which amounts to a tidy sum in the form of investment.
On the other hand you have those elderly French and Italian gentlemen who have learned these skills from their fathers when they were around and who have been making wine regularly for as long as they can remember. In spite of not using any of the above (except for the grape crushers and pressers which are required due to the large volume of grapes they process).
