Wine bottling

 

Wine bottling
Bottling is very important for the wine.

It is the last stage of the production process and includes all the steps of the bottling line. The basic parts of the line includes the washing  machine where the bottles are rinsed with water, the filler and the corker. The classical method of tapping uses  natural corks which  isolate the wine of microrganisms and prevents air infiltration. Cork is produced from the bark of a particular tree.  After filling and corking, a plastic or tin capsule is applied to the neck of the bottle in a capsular. Next the bottle enters a labelling machine (labeller) where a label is applied.
