Bottling the Wine

We bottled the wine (which was pressed, see here, and racked, see here earlier). We ended up with 29 bottles,  8 of Cabernet Franc, 10 of Merlot and 11 of a 70-30 mix. My MIL, FIL and SIL were here, as well as our three NYC friends, and we put everyone to work.

The wine tasting is an event worthy of paparazzi.

I’ll publish the labels tomorrow. Some of them are hilarious!
