10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Come out Saturday morning to see the cellar crew bottling Red, White, & Blue®. We will also have some wine from this bottling to taste. See for yourself if the rumors about “bottle shock” are accurate. You will be able to watch the action from the visitor gallery. 

Bottling is a multi-step process starting with removal of empty bottles from cartons. We shoot a jet of purified water into each bottle to remove any cardboard dust that may have gotten inside the bottle during transportation from the bottle manufacturer. We fill the bottle with nitrogen gas. Then, we put exactly 750 ml of wine in the bottle. The wine displaces the nitrogen leaving the head space above the wine as pure nitrogen. Then, the roll-on, tamper evident cap is installed and the full bottles move around to the labeler where the front and back labels are affixed in one operation. We visually inspect each bottle and then put them back in their cases. The cases move through the top-taper while we ink-jet information about the wine, lot code, UPC code, winery name, and wine name on one side of the carton.

It takes 4–5 people to run the bottling line at normal speeds of 125 bottles per minute or 1,500 bottles per hour. They will all be there showing you how it is done.
