Wine production, 19th century artwork. Workers in a wine cellar adding grapes to vats and presses. At right, crushing, stomping and fermentation in large open vats produces an initial extract used to produce the finest forms of this wine. The press being operated at left squeezes juices from the residue from the vats, used to produce lesser grades of this wine. This cellar is producing the Clos Vougeot vintage, an ancient red wine from the Burgundy region of France. Engraving from 'Grands Hommes et Grands Faits de l'Industrie' (Great Men and Great Facts of Industry), published in France circa 1880.
