Bottling Your Wines
After months of careful nurturing, your wine is ready for it's finishing touches - unless you drink it, of course. Each batch is best presented in a consistent size / shape of bottle. An optional, but lovely touch, is to finish your bottles with a professional looking label, and a coloured bottle cap. To achieve this you will need:
- Corking Gun
- Bottle Neck Caps
- Bottle Labels
The corking gun is a simple mechanical device for forcing corks into the bottles, it's easier than you would think. The bottle neck caps are simply placed over the top of the bottle and held in the steam from a boiling kettle, and your wine is presented perfectly!
Set the cork level with the top of the bottle and leave 1/2 inch between cork and wine
