51,324 green bottles sitting on the line....

This week the mobile bottling truck came into the winery to bottle the 2007 Felton Road Central Otago Pinot Noir. It took us three days to bottle and package the approximately 4,000 cases of wine - 70% of which will leave these shores for the export market. For each run we had to put different back labels on - for instance for the US the bottles needed a "don't drink while pregnant" warning and Australia needed a calculation of how many standard drinks it contained (8.4). Nothing is more tedious in a winery than bottling but it has to be done - glad it is out of the way though!
