To have an understanding and removing the final work of stuffing the bottles or carboys, i explain here all the existing work only to prepare the wicker.
First, you have to cut Wicker in November and December.
Then you have to bury the wicker on the ground.
After Easter, the Wicker begins to burst. It is then time to remove it from the ground and start the operation of the "skinning".
This "skinning" is made with a knife. Next, you need to select all the Wicker.
The thicker on one side,the media to another and further thin to another.
This thinner Wicker is for the wings and the average is for the "body" of bottles and carboys.
After skinning with a knife, the wicker are placed in the sun to dry well.
After drought, is tied in bundles and stored to "dry" (sheltered from rain) to be used when needed.
Before being used, must be 24 hours inside of water.
Then, the following is the thickest. is "cracked" (sliced) into three parts.
It is then passed on a hand made machine called "5 Escalos".
