It was quite an evening as we really got a rhythm down and finished up in a little over 3 hours. Which included a short pizza break halfway through. Not bad considering both our bottle filler and corker claim to do just around 55 to 60 cases per hour. Our crew really rocked!
Now Erich will be busy labeling the bottles, capsules will be added and on March 23rd the tasting room will be filled once again with Rocky's Red. A semi sweet, soft red wine that is a wonderful remembrance of our late great winery friend.
Thanks to our friends Jerry and Dwayne for lending us a hand. It was actually a lot of fun! We'll be bottling our next wine very soon..

Then realizing we still had 1,900 bottles we decided to use higher tech equipment (actually the above was the last bit of wine that came from the bottling unit).
