My parents are here for a week and we’ve been busy bottling the 2005 vintage. A few months ago I racked the wine out of barrels into the stainless steel storage tanks shown in the background of the photo (left). After a couple of months settling in these tanks the wine is clear and ready for bottling. The bottles are then filled by gravity and corked by hand (below left). Of course the wine is never filtered, nor fined, nor even pumped in order preserve all its qualities.
