Record-keeping is an essential part of vineyard and winery work. Whether keeping track of berry clusters on vines or monitoring the movement of juice from one container to another, winery workers have to track a lot information.
This sheet tracks the history of the wine that was aged in the French oak barrel (1998.0181.17) before bottling at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in California’s Napa Valley in the 1990s. It records the number of the fermentation tank from which the wine was taken, as well as the temperature and brix (percent of sugar as measured in degrees brix) on various dates and the dates of cellar operations pertaining to the wine in the barrel. Other data recorded by the winery included the precise location where the grapes were grown, the sugar level at harvest, and technical information about the fermentation process.
