Some education on a bottling line

bottling line

Its been roughly 25 years since I learned of the heartbreak and processes involved in bottling wines, and I was overdue some further education on a portable line (one that moves form winery to winery) The winemaker prepares the wine, supplies bottles, capsules, label, cartons, and the machinery takes over (to provide membrane filtration and fill the bottles). This still means that very repetitive manual labour has to

  • Load empty bottles onto the conveyer
  • Assemble cartons and inserts
  • Pack the filled bottles into cartons
  • Load cartons onto pallets

Each task is tough.

The pace is relentless.  So, sore back, sore feet, sore hands and a more modern understanding of the exercise.
