    Best way I’ve found to remove labels is by using a heat gun to heat the label and then they peel right offs They usually leave no residue. With that being said there are always going to be the occasional pesky label that requires more work.

    I do same as Vernon. Pretty easy. Some residual glue needs to be removed occasionally

    I bought 4 cases of glass Screw Cap Bordeaux bottles from Innovative Sourcing in Yakima, WA (www.innovativesourcing.com) for $7.80 per case. However, it was the high shipping cost to Phila, PA area that made that deal not so great.

    you need to take a trip to Gino Pinto. I think their cases under $11.00.

    Rinse a few times store in box, before bottling rinse for about 8 seconds each bottle with hot water and sanitize with sulphite...rack to cool and bottle.
