Our Bottled Wine Is Almost Ready To Share
It’s been a long season of winemaking – one riddled with harsh weather and a never-ending slew of pandemic challenges. However, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as we have reached the final stages of wine production for the most recent harvest.
Right now, we’re beginning to filter and bottle our whites and rose wines, and in about six months, we’ll begin bottling our reds. As we do everything by hand – just like how we perform every stage of the winemaking process – we look forward to sharing our bottles with you this spring.
The best way to get your hands on a bottle of our Central European wine is to subscribe to a case or join our case club, ensuring that you’ll be able to get the wines you want and at the most reasonable price we can offer. You can do this by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 908-735-9359. After wine releases, bottles will also be available for sale at the winery while supplies last.
Final wine production stages
Here’s exactly what we’re up to as we complete the final stages of wine production.
- First, we filter our white and rose wines, which remove particles and make the wine as brilliantly clear as one would want when gazing at a glass.
- A small dose of sulfur is added to the wine to ensure its stability.
- Now, it’s time for bottling. We use a gravity-fed bottler to fill four bottles simultaneously before they are moved to the corker, and finally, to a 12-bottle case.
- Next, our labels hit the bottles, as do caps and heat to seal it fully.
- We rest the wine for 2-3 months as it goes through “bottle shock,” which allows the wine to normalize before heading to our customers.
