It is the time of year for bottling. Heavenly reds, wonderful whites...ohh what a terrific time. Bottling is the most fun of any step in the Winery, because every step or station is easy. We bought a new pneumatic corker a couple of years ago, and I love that thing.
The corker just pushes the cork in while you press two buttons...so easy!
Bottling involves a little assessment of quality, while the bottling is underway, just not too much, otherwise who knows how the labels and capsules will look ;-).
If I remember at the right time, I will try to get pictures of bottling, wouldn't that be cool?
We have three wines ready to bottle, another that will be ready in about two weeks, and another maybe a week after that. Thanksgiving is going to look like full shelves for the Winery! Except for the apple wine...it will be a while longer. We still are waiting for the Apple wine to be made and ready to go. We are still holding out hope for Christmas.
