Winemaking 101: Pre and post fermentation “soak”

Winemaker Fred Scherrer of the Scherrer Winery discusses pre and post fermentation “soaks”, or the time that the grapes are left in contact with the juice, and the effect of each process on the final wine. Along the way, he compares cold-soaks in warmer and cooler climates.

Jessica Bell of the Midwest Wine School talks with Fred. Sound and video quality has increased dramatically at Ask a Winemaker, but we love these old “library” offerings that show were we started.
