What can I tell my wife or mother about the possibility of spiders, earwigs, bird poop, etc in the must? They were horrified to hear that commecial vineyards do not wash grapes before crushing and that I should not wash my grapes either...

You can tell them that wine has been made this way for thousands of years and people have been drinking it this way for thousands of years. If you have ever seen the way that some cheeses and dried meats are made, they would be horrified as well.

thanks
