April, 2013

On April 28th the bottling van with the assembly line arrived at Twin Oaks. Our workers were waiting for it and many friends showed up to pitch in – and work hard! Our goal was to bottle 530 cases of 2012 red wine and we did it!

We bottled the Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, the Norton 2012 and our 2012 Raven Rocks Red. We had to take the bottles out of the cases, put them on the line where they were automatically filled with wine, corked, capsuled, labeled and then taken off the line by us to be put back in the cases and stored in the cold room. Special thanks to the guys who hefted the full cases of wine – remember there were 530 of those! Pictured above are most of the people who participated and we needed every single one of them.

The wine has been happily sitting in the dark, getting used to being in the bottles and we have already released the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2012 Norton. The Cab is fruity and bold and the velvety Norton is rich and smoky. We believe you will love both of them!

Join us on the decks and in the tasting room to enjoy the wines and the view. Join our club and participate in special events at the historic Twin Oaks Tavern Inn.

See you at Twin Oaks,
