I'll go with Racking, A.
That would be an A.
Thanks too, was wondering the same thing too
Wine Quiz Answer: A. Racking
Racking is the process of taking clear wine and removing it off of its sediment when aging, usually from barrel to barrel. It's a labor-intensive process, and results in more barrels that then have to be cleaned (requiring yet even more labor!), but one that provides some aeration during the move (which is thought to benefit the potential complexity of some fine wines).
