Spanish to English translations [PRO]
Wine / Oenology / Viticulture
Spanish term or phrase: volteo
This is from a tourism text describing the "Cata Flamenca" event in Andalusia, which emphasises the link between flamenco and wine and is some skill associated with wine making. I am not sure if "volteo, venencia y tonelería" should be thought of as separate activities or a single activity.

Entre los actos destaca la cata flamenca, el concurso de destreza en el oficio de volteo, venencia y toneleríala; la misa flamenca y la pisá de la uva a la antigua usanza,
