Investing in Quality

Elevage is a French winemaking term that The Oxford Companion to Wine defines as "the series of cellar operations that take place between fermentation and bottling, suggesting that the winemaker's role is rather like that of a loving parent who guides, disciplines, and civilizes the raw young wine that emerges from the fermentation vessel."

Every year we make a few investments to bring up the overall quality of our wine. Last year it was a cluster sorting table, and this year it is a new destemmer/deleafer, which our excellent winemaker Eric von Krosigk introduces in this short video:

Shooting for quality over frequency is the best way to exfoliate. Rubbing the skin intensely is not the best way to go about the process. You will get better results if you are gentle. While the product you get may be called "skin scrub," you should never scrub your skin with it because it can damage your skin permanently to do so.At all costs, avoid the use of sunbeds! Since overexposure to UV rays can lead to your skin aging prematurely, you want to avoid this as it is irreversible. Although tanning may give your skin a short-term glow, regular use of a tanning bed can cause age spots and make your skin become wrinkled and saggy.
