Bottling Day Part I

Last night we got off to a rough start. We thought the septic backing up would be the one bad thing that always happens on bottling days. Well, the bottling truck one upped that. It got stuck coming down out tough gravel road. We had to call a tow truck to pull it out.

We were here until 8:30 last night and did not get everything done that we need to. That means we'll be starting about an hour late this morning.

The inside of the winery is mostly ready though.

Outside Matt is working to get the truck up and running. We are much further down the driveway than usual. We just could not get the truck further down this time. All the rain has made the gravel road soft and the truck can't get traction to push the trailer back up the hill. When we are done this afternoon we will likely have to call the tow truck again to pull the entire rig back out.

The glass is staged though and ready to go.
