We will focus on bottling Red, White, & Blue® each week for the next several weeks. We also have a batch of Oskyfizzante® Pink to label. Normally wine is labeled as we bottle it. The fizzy wines, however, are bottled at low temperatures in order to keep the carbonation from escaping into the air. Cold bottles sweat and we have to wait a couple of days until the bottle temperature reaches ambient temperature and the bottles are dry before we can label.
Now is the time of year that we plan our requirements for bottles. Because they have a 150-day lead-time, we must plan ahead.
We are always working on maintenance of something. Finally, we are working on updating several of our cellar procedures.
