February was a busy month for us in the cellar. The team was working hard bottling the first wines of 2023. Our February bottling included 2022 Living Sparkling wines, 2022 Living Land Rose, 2021 Living Land Cabernet Franc, Haskap and 2022 Piquette. We expect some of these wines to be released come Spring time!
This was also our first bottling using our new production facility. We work with a local bottling company that drove their bottling line in a truck to our winery. The bottling line was with us for a week, and we had ten people scheduled to rotate working the line for the week. Only some of the wines bottled were from our 2022 vintage; we bottled some 2021 red wines. We also have this bottling line booked again for May and July.
