Mobile Bottling with Signature Mobile Bottlers and Forgeron Cellars
This week I participated on the Signature Mobile Bottlers mobile bottling line for Forgeron Cellars. I got to work side by side with the bottling technician as he orchestrated the label change out by variety and oversaw the entire production line. The bottles were filled, corked, capsuled, labeled and boxed.
In total 1091 cases of wine, or 13,092 bottles, were bottled at a rate of 60 bottles per minute. The bottled wines included six of Forgeron Cellar’s varieties: Barbera, GSM, Syrah le Collines, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Primitivo. Throughout the day at least 12 of us were working in some capacity on the bottling line. During the bottling I was in quality control and watched for any labeling problems.
It was very interesting to see the mobile bottling experience firsthand. I learned a lot about the process and how quickly things move. I’m so glad I got to be a part of Forgeron Cellars bottling this week! Stay tuned for a blog next week featuring shots of the new Forgeron Cellars’ wines.
