Girasol (Sp.)

Machine used to reproduce the effect of riddling in the production of sparkling wines.

Bottles held in a cage are gradually moved to the upright position, shaking the sediment of dead yeast cells into the neck. The girasol achieves this in a few days, compared with several weeks for manual riddling.
