Bottling Week Complete

It was a warm week in Napa, and with over 5000 cases to bottle, it was a busy time!

First off were the whites, then the reds. All 1.5L, 3L and 6L large format bottles are done by hand - so our winemaker Alison, along with her trusty sidekicks Lesley and Heather, bottled each one individually.

Thank you to the bottling crew at Laird Estate - what a great group of people. You made the task of bottling, a simple one!

Last word . . . Congratulations to Lillian, our wonderful Accounting Manager - she recently passed her Sommelier exam with flying colors! Great job!
