On the wine bottling line at Hidden Bench

Growing the grapes, deciding when to pick them and how to make them is only part of the thrill in the winemaking process. Once you have all the juice, you’ve got to put it somewhere. That’s where the bottling line comes in. I was invited by Hidden Bench assistant winemaker Jay Johnston to come on out to the winery for bottling day. Hidden Bench uses a mobile bottling line called Hunter Bottling out of Fenwick, Ont., one of two mobile units operating in Niagara. Here’s a slideshow of all the fun.
