c. n.


Partial drying or desiccation of over-ripe grapes by heat, resulting in a maximum concentration of sugar. 1


There are two main methods to producing dried grape wines. The first involves giving a twist to the stem supporting the bunch, but allowing the fruit to remain on the vine; […]. Once sufficiently dehydrated the grapes are harvested as normal; this practice is rather similar to the more usual late harvest method, although in this case the grapes dehydrate naturally as the vine shuts down for winter, with no damage to the stem. Although stem-twisting may have been a popular early method, the practice of drying the grapes after harvest is probably the more important today. Traditionally, the process may have taken place on beds of reeds or straw, hence the French vin de paille and the Austrian strohwein, but in modern times, with commercial and financial pressures, the process is much more likely to occur in purpose-built facilities, the grapes resting on specifically designed trays. 2


Refrigeration cells have been built to favor healthy and natural passerillage raisining of grapes by controlling the humidity in the air. 3
