A double Cabernet bottling.

Had a quick bottling event in Vinoland today.  A friend's Cabernet Franc and Vinoland's own Cabernet Sauvignon are now slumbering peacefully inside antique green Bordeaux bottles.  Vinoland's Syrah is still waiting to be bottled, but thoughts are now moving on to all things harvest.  Mumm Napa started their harvest yesterday by bringing in their first Pinot noir for sparkling wine production, so other wineries will not be too far behind bringing in their white wine grapes.  I love this time of year.

Vinogirl, is there a preference of which kind of used wine bottles are reused?

Jealous.

NHW: We used to reuse bottles in the past for our own wine (when the vines weren't as productive), but it was just too much work. We buy nice, new 'shiners' now.

Thud: I wish you'd been here :)
