The Machine That Goes Ping



When I got to Domaine de la Chaise the other day Christophe was filtering the last of his current stock of white wine for bottling. The machine is a Flavy FX cross-flow filter. Christophe loves it because he just has to connect it up to the appropriate hoses, programme it and set it going. He can get on with other things while it pings and bongs and tootles its way through the task. He and I are both rather amused at its somewhat eccentric tone repetoire.

The machine is owned by a group of seven winemakers in the Saint Georges sur Cher area.
