Completed my first bottling, a Winexpert Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi II. In retrospect, I wish I had purchased new bottles. I saved my used wine bottles for about 6 months. Only thing I didn't count on was the variety of bottle shapes. I used a 3 1/2" x 5" label, which didn't work well with Burgundy bottles, as they wrinkle. The Bordeaux bottles were perfect. Used an Avery 94256 label and downloaded the MS Word template. Had to have a second printing as my gold border got cut off on one side due to alignment issues. Also bought a Wine Label Wizard on Amazon. It's basic but does help to keep the labels straight when adhering to the bottle.
