Spanish term or phrase: vencer
En esta sala La uva se extendía sobre los tablones que cubrían el trullo parecidos a los que tenemos en el techo con una separación que permitía que cayera por él, el mosto. Se pisaba la uva encima de las tablas. Los que hacían esta faena calzaban alborgas o alpargatas de esparto, para no resbalar con los pellejos. El mosto se escurría entre las tablas cayendo al trullo.
Después se doblaban las tablas, SE VENCÍAN, para que el resto del mosto y el orujo, es decir, los restos de piel, pulpa y raspajo cayeran también

shake


Explanation:
I think it means that the boards were taken up and shaken/beaten, to remove any remnants.

The boards/planks they use to press the grapes on are then turned over and shaken or beaten as all the left-overs are used in the mosto-making process.

agree  Carol Gullidge: either of these seems feasible, but I'd be reluctant to actually use them without confirmation from the outsourcer or someone in the wine trade regarding the actual process (perhaps a video?)

  -> Thanks, Carol, I agree with that--it could be either, and I wouldnt know which to chose. I tried to find more info on the process but it is too specific.

tilt / turn upright/on their edge


Explanation:
Along the same lines as Marie, but the DRAE gives this as a possible meaning, which would seem to fit with what's going on here, e.g., perhaps the boards are stacked one on top of the other and then tilted or turned upright to drain the material left on them.
