The Bottling Process

Undoubtedly, we pay maximum attention to the quality of our bottles, corks, decor and packaging materials. We acquire all of the items from leading European producers. We, therefore, pay respect to wine connoisseurs, as an esthetical delight the exterior of a wine bottle is an important part of sophisticated consumption. Furthermore, the long life of wine in a bottle is only possible when the bottle is excellently made, and sealed with a top-quality cork, which we acquire from the Portuguese company Amorin, the world’s leading producer.

The Bottling Line

After going through the filtration processes, wine is transferred to the bottling line, where it is poured into bottles and corked. The bottling line is a logical epilogue to an extremely complex process of creating wine. Here we use one of the best machines of its kind, the QBS-V ISO 12/12/1/1 made by the Italian producer Alfatek SrL which works at a rate of 2500 bottles per hour.

The line not only bottles the wine, but initially prepares the bottle for bottling by thoroughly cleaning it and pumping nitrogen that protects the wine from oxidation. The line is equipped with a complex dosing system and is capable of working with natural cork, champagne cork and screw caps.

The Cap

The Cap

After the cleaning and drying processes, corked bottles are transferred into the encapsulating machine. Our lines are equipped with effective and productive MINIBLOC OTTICO model made by Italian company Robino & Galandrino SpA.
The machine distributes the caps and, with help of thermobell, presses the cap onto the bottleneck. The cap not only renders the bottle marketable, but also prevents dirt and microbes from penetrating the cork.

After the bottling and corking processes, our wine bottles move towards exterior cleaning and drying. We employ the OPTIMA1-1212 model that is a modern well-proven machine made by the Italian company Omar R&G.
OPTIMA1 performs 2 functions. It eliminates visible stains from the bottle and removes moisture from glass by using vaccum pumps. Our bottles leave the machine completely dry and in a fully marketable condition. They are now ready for encapsulation and labeling.

The Labelling Machine

The Labelling Machine

The labeling machine concludes the process of bottle decoration, giving each brand of our wines their unique individuality. We use the CG80-5-2C-1RPS-SFG made by the Italian company Cavagnino & Gatti SpA for applying front and counter labels.
The machine is designed for use on bottles of different sizes and formats. It is equipped with sensors for the precise application of labels. Apart from applying glue and affixing labels, the machine dates every counter label, indicating the day of bottling and a serial number of a batch. It is also equipped with an automatic system for applying an excise stamp on a bottleneck.
