Grape selection to optimize quality can take place at 3 different points depending on the aim:

  • In the vineyard, if you have a trained and dedicated harvest team.
  • Before destemming or  pressing, if despite the care taken you have not been able to free yourself 100% from the cryptogamic pressure.
  • After destemming, to remove plant debris or raisined berries.

Manual selection

A good selection table must have few secrets and a lot of common sense:

  • Robust construction.
  • Ergonomics of work for the selectors.
  • Speed regulation.
  • And most importantly, easy cleaning for when the day is over, leaving it spotless with the least consumption of time and water.

Mechanical selection

When what we want to eliminate are all those grape grains that break the homogeneity of a cluster, we can automatically separate all those smaller grapes that have not reached maturity or that are raisined using our mechanical or optical sorting equipment.

The vibrating screen of the vibrating table, adjustable from 2.5 to 10 mm, separates undesirable elements by size.

THE VINICLEAN accessory is designed to eliminate plant debris that may escape from the destemmer.

Destemming and crushing

The perfect destemming would only exist with perfect grapes, with an extremely homogeneous maturity where the turgor of the berries and the force necessary to separate them from their petioles is identical for each grain.
