Bottling Day!

If the final stage of a wine’s life cycle is the transfer from open bottle to waiting glass, then this is its penultimate stage...the bottling line. After going through harvest, crush, fermentation, cellaring, racking, and many, many blending trials, this is where winemaker Sally Johnson (shown), bottling manager Chris Bergen, and the rest of the Pride Mountain Vineyards crew put the final wines to bed, where they will rest for four to six months before being shared with you.

Shown here is the bottling of Pride Mountain Vineyards 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007 Vintner Select Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007 Vintner Select Merlot, 2008 Napa Chardonnay, and 2008 Vintner Select Chardonnay on the afternoon of July 7, 2009.
