Count Your Corks!

May 25, 2012

It’s bottling day!

Your wine is filtered, you have 30 sterilized bottles and you have..how many corks? Only 15! Time for a quick trip to Wine Sense to get some more. You’re in luck this time because Wine Sense has very convenient hours– but what about next time?

Here are some tips for you: 

– Always buy in 100s. It is a better value and will do 3 batches of wine with a few to spare.

– When you open the bag of corks reseal the bag or put the unused corks into a Ziploc bag. The corks will  be clean and ready for your next batch. 

– Count your corks the day before bottling to give yourself time to get more if necessary.

Happy Bottling!
