Bottle cleaning

1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Fellow Garagiste Kate found us 30 cases of used bottles a winery wanted to give away. Thank you, Kate!

Still, we’ll want to make sure they’re bottling-ready, so while I’m pretty confident they’re as clean as the winemaker says, just to make sure I want to get a small crew going to rinse and then SO2-spritz them before we use them.

I’m thinking we’ll do it outside and:

  • A preliminary rinse
  • Use a cool gizmo I bought to quickly spritz some SO2 up into the bottle
  • Dunk all the bottles in it
  • One more quick rinse
  • Set them up upside down to dry

They don’t need to be bone dry for our bottling, so that should be okay.

For this event:

  • Please bring your mask. Not for COVID, but just to stay comfortable when you’re near the SO2
  • Wear comfortable shoes and bring clothing you can get a little wet


Bookings are closed for this event.
