It’s Time to Bottle!

The Easiest Way to Clean Your Bottles!

As we get closer to Christmas many winemakers are in a hurry to get their wine bottled. As a result, many of my customers are asking me what the best way is to I sanitize their bottles.

I recommend two methods:

1- Bring them into my store on Pembina Highway and run the through our Automatic Bottle Washer. The Bottle Washer is a modified industrial dishwasher that sanitizes 30 bottles inside and out in under 8 minutes. Very fast!

2- If coming in to the store is not convenient then I recommend using an Avvinatore Bottle Sulphiter and Aseptox (no rinse sanitizer) to sanitize the inside of the bottles. The Avvinatore squirts sanitizer inside your clean bottles. Then hang the sterilized bottles on a Bottle Tree to drip dry. The Bottle Tree keeps your bottling area neat and tidy while you clean and bottle.

Both methods will save you a lot of time when sanitizing bottles and help relieve a little ‘Holiday Stress’!

Happy Fermenting,

Bruce, Manager (Wine Sense- Pembina Hwy)

Oh yes, for your bottle cleaning convenience, there are Automatic Bottle Washers at our Vermillion, Pembina, Portage and Brandon locations.
