Music to bottle by

As we headed into a full day of bottling the 2007 Chardonnay, Sonya, Karla, Alicia, Kathryn, Joan and I started out with no music.

Although the rhythmic “squeak – kashook” of the corking machine provided us with some distraction, real live music was called for.

With the help of a mix of pop love (mostly forsaken) songs and country love (mostly about trucks and beer and broken hearts) songs we were rolling along.

We rotated the jobs – moving the empties, filling bottles, corking filled bottles, shrinking the neck wrap, labeling and stacking full cases.

Eighty-two cases later we were done.

After a few weeks resting to recover from “bottle shock” it’ll be available in the tasting room.
