Laughter Makes the World Go 'Round

Join The Meritage Resort and our partner in comedy - The Laugh Cellar - and Macerate in comedy - be a part of the laughter movement in wine country! If you weren't sure, maceration is the winemaking process where the phenolic materials of the grape—tannins, coloring agents (anthocyanins) and flavor compounds—are leached from the grape skins, seeds and stems into the must. To macerate is to soften by soaking, and maceration is the process by which the red wine receives its red color, since raw grape juice is clear-grayish in color. In the production of white wines, maceration is either avoided or allowed only in very limited manner in the form of a short amount of skin contact with the juice prior to pressing.
