Bottling of the Chardonnay
We have a total of 77 bottles of a very delicious Chardonnay this year! A long way to go before we will be giving it out as christmas gifts. This vintage will have to be drunk with friends at Il Masin.
As usual we did our bottle cleaning over a smoky fire early Saturday morning.
Shining clean, recycled wine bottles are cooled on the bottle rack.
In the winery we then siphoned the wine into the cooled bottles before corking and capping them.
And a fine chilled Il Masin Chardonnay for lunch with good friends Bob and Heather Campbell to celebrate Bobs 80th birthday.
