Almost Done

We've just finished. Everything except the scary part. Me loading $100,000 in wine on to a truck. That should happen in 30 minutes.

Stefania with a big smile as we finish up.

Jerry prepping the 'red bucket' to clean the hoses. First we run 5 gallons of water through the pump and houses to get all the red out. Then it's cleaned with a citric acid and water mixture.

The last few cases coming off the line

We only needed a crew of three on the truck, this was a very efficient bottling truck.

Empty glass in place and a pallet waits for the final 30 cases or so.

The last bottle off the line. This is actually 'waste'. We keep the first 2 cases on and last two off as unsalable items.
