What is the process of grape-stomping also known as?

 


The Harvest is finished and the grapes are crushed. While the crushing and pressing process has become largely mechanized in modern times, grape-stomping (also known as pigeage) was traditionally the method of maceration in winemaking. Rather than using a wine press or other machinery, grapes were crushed by having barefoot participants repeatedly stomp on them in vats to release their juices and begin fermentation.
