Bottle Your Own Wine

February 29, 2008

Wine Virgin, I want to know how you bottle your own wine but I don’t know where or how to start. What’s your advice and can you help me? - Holly in Myrtle Beach, SC

Of course I can Holly. You will need a few bottle supplies but just follow the steps listed below to bottle your own wine and you can put a few away for that special occasion like breakfast, lunch… or dinner even.

First off, you will need bottles, corks and a corker. You can find all these online without much trouble and after you have acquired everything you need, here is what you do.

Step 1:
If the bottles are new and unused, rinse them with hot water and dry them. But if you are using recycled bottles, soak them in a cleaning solution recommended by a wine-making supply shop. Then rinse them with water and dry them but make positive the bottles are completely dry.

Step 2:
Prepare new corks by soaking them in water for 1 to 2 hours, then rinsing them several times with warm water. But again, if you have used corks prepare them by soaking, bring them to a quick boil and then rinse the corks with hot water. After that, finish with a cold-water rinse.

Step 3:
Now after you have prepared the bottles, place one below the wine container.

Step 4:
If you are going to bottle your own wine at a local winery then there will be a siphon that will allow you to pour the wine into the bottle. Holly this is the fun part, suck on the other end of the tube until the wine begins to flow. Then insert the notched end of the siphon tube into your bottle but make sure the tube isn’t touching the very bottom. When you’re bottling your own wine, fill up the bottles to 3/4 inch below the bottom of the cork and after that use your corker to insert the corks into the bottles.

See, all you needed were a few bottle supplies and the skills you already possessed to get the wine inside your chosen container. How cool is that? And there you go; you’re now officially a wino!!
