February was a busy month at B Cellars. We hosted our first B Society Wine Club social of the year, saw a lot of rainfall, and even saw some legitimate snowfall in the hills of the Napa Valley!
The most exciting two days of the month were the two bottling days in mid-February. The wines get moved from barrels to the tanks in preparation for the big event and are allowed to settle and stabilize for a few days while we stage all of the glass, corks, and capsules. The mobile bottling truck from Ryan Mobile Bottling arrives the day prior to bottling to set up, and then it’s a race to the finish.
The winter/spring bottling is always exciting and much anticipated. We see the return of wines that have been sold out for a while and we bottle our white wines. Seeing favorites like Sauvignon Blanc, Blend 23, Rosé, and Chardonnay makes it feel like spring is just around the corner. We even bottled a couple of new white wines this year. 😉
Stay tuned this spring for announcements about all of our new releases from this round of bottling. As always, make sure to pick up your favorites and stock up for the summer!
