    Some people insist on filtering, others are proud to avoid it - You decide.

    Most white wines are filtered prior to bottling, and some reds are. Filtering can clarify a wine so that it sparkles in your glass, but if you filter too heavily it can strip character from the wine. How do you decide what level of filtration, if any, is appropriate for your wine? Well, you ask a guy who has 25+ years experience making that call. Crushpad's Chief Winemaker, Michael Zitzlaff explains your options.
