When making wine from grapes, does one need to remove the seeds, or just run fruit thru crusher seeds and all? I know stems need to be removed

the seeds shouldn't be crushed. But, you ferment on the skins with the seeds for a few days, and then when you press, the seeds should be left behind with the skins.

I don't have a press, so I used a very large mesh bag and hand squeezed the pulp. That worked ok, but I only had 65 pounds of grapes.

Thanks. I plan on building my own crusher and press, then buying the grapes and fruit until those I plant start to produce
