First Vintage: Hand Bottling at Sugarbush Vineyards

Our Pinot Noir 2010 is now in bottles! 

Our friends at Sugarbush Vineyards, who sheltered our wine and nutured its development, hosted a few of the Kuepfer Vineyards crew on Saturday morning so we could bottle our wine.

We only have about 100 cases and so elected to bottle by hand. 

 

 

 A four-spout filler, hand-cranked floor corker, four willing hands, and good humour were all that were needed.  We completed the task in just over four hours with clever conversation and pleasant company to help speed things along.

That was the easiest vineyard job yet!  Now we just need a name and a label, and someoone to drink the wine!

Cheers
