Winemaking 101: Pigeage (punchdowns) with Eric Texier

Beginner
Winemaker Eric Texier talks about the technique of punching down the cap of grapes that settles on top of the juice as wine ferments. Originally a way to avoid the development of volatile acidity, it became a technique for extracting color and tannin. Now Texier feels it has become overused and a tool of “modern” winemaking.
