POMQUETTE

The French winemaking traditon of "Piquette", which is basically a thin wine that is created by infusing the pomace with water and using the pomace a second time. The resulting light, watery wine was given to the helpers as a refreshment in the vineyard for motivational purposes. We  use this method for apple pomace.

 

Cause we use apples (French: pomme), we simply call this process “pomquette” to keep the French language origin.

There are also other ingredients, techniques and methods to give the watery fruitwine a more interesting profile.
