Winemaking equipment – Overview

TV Pinot on Rock 2


A few months ago we deemed our 2012 Turtle Vines Pinot Noir “finished”, but we needed to make it look as good as it tastes in a bottle.  What else did I need?… you ask.  Well, I had the label, corks, foil and the wine…but I didn’t have any equipment to put the package together.  So I needed a wine filler, a labeler, a corker and a foil spinner.  For runs under 100 cases you can get by with smaller equipment that will still make your finished bottle stand out.  What does this cost?  Under $1,000 and then some rental fee’s…but you can read about each of my purchases and issues over the next few posts.
