San Vicente Cellars

 Sangiovese and Dulcinea Bottling 

Vince and Cathy Pantess invited their friends and wine club members to help with bottling a few barrels of San Vicente Sangiovese and their Dulcinea red wines today. It was a fun event with everyone pitching in from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm.  

After a little on-the-job training the bottling line started to operate smoothly.  Samples of the wine were served after 12:00 and lunch was provided.

People rotated to the next bottling station down the line so everyone got to do something different during the day.

Filling, Corking, Labeling and Packing.
Bottling the old school way seems to work well at San Vicente Cellars!
