Hi, I just bottled my first bottle of wine ever in my life this week. I must tell you all. I could not sleep of excitement the night leading up to our bottling day. The first wine is a rosé wine made from a hybrid grape variety called Regent.

Let me share some pictures. We used the Enolmatic bottling machine and a screw cap machine to put the screw caps on top of the bottles. I finally feel like I am a winemaker now.

Nicely done, you’ve got quite the skill set. Do you see making wine from any French grape varieties?
We are up north in Europe. I am planning to buy grapes coming from Southern Europe this fall to make wine out of it. Last fall, I was too late to be able to order them. Getting good quality grapes (we have no vineyard ourselves) is a challenge over here on mainland Europe.

Congrats. With my first harvest last fall, I've got my own first bottling in a few months (rosé, from Barbera) and I confess I'm already crazy nervous about it. Good to see your success. You've got a slick set-up, and the finished product looks terrific.
