Volunteering at a Small Winery Part II

April 11, 2011

I spent another day out doing some work for Olequa Cellars last Friday. This time, my husband came with me, and we opened 12 cases of wine and poured them back into the carboy. Turns out the wine wasn’t quite done fermenting, which was creating CO2 and causing the corks to start failing (better than the bottle failing). Thing is, it took us 3 hours for the two of us to do that, whereas last time I was there, it took five of us two hours to bottle 50 cases.

Lesson learned: be absolutely positive the wine is done fermenting before bottling.
