In anticipation of the summer fruits, I bottled our Pomegranate 2007 wine into bottles.
First, the bottles are soaked in a potassium metabisulfate solution. (very dilute!)
The corks are also soaked to soften them.
The carboy (it's a six gallon glass carboy) is moved to the counter to allow sediment to settle.
One at a time, wine is siphoned carboy to bottle. The red thing is the hand corker.
The job is done quickly.
Poor light, but one shot for color.
Planning for a bike ride and perhaps making some plum wine tomorrow. Summer is finally here!
