Piquette

Name for a wine that comes from the rape (Press residues) is generated. With the Romans he was called iora and was very popular in ancient times as a mass drink for poor people. Other names are Gesindewein, Haustrunk, Lauerwein, Leps (South Tyrol), Máslás (Hungary), Pug (Pfalz), Nachwein, Piquette (France), Stingler (South Tyrol), Trebernwein, Trottwein and water wine (South Tyrol). He is going through fermentation from untreated pomace pomace (in white wine after pressing) or by leaching of fermented pomace with water (in case of red wine after fermentation). The alcohol-poor, tannin-rich "wine" used to be drunk as a "thirst quencher" and was the typical drink of farm workers. Within the EU, pomace, provided that its production is authorized by the Member State, may only be used for distillation or used for the own needs of the winegrower. The earlier from the lees (Fermentation residues) obtained wine is called Hefepresswein, See also below special wines,
