In the midst of making nine blends this week for a mobile bottling run tomorrow, we took a few hours out to make 624 case boxes for our L’Autre Côte Livermore Valley Cabernet Franc.
The glass bottles come in plain white boxes (called “contents” boxes) that get dumped one at a time on the bottling line. These boxes will then be recycled and replaced by the branded L’Autre Côte box.
It is supposed to rain tomorrow, and our bottling is being done outside in a mostly-covered space. We are hopeful that the changing of blue box for white can be done with a minimum of hassle in the cramped space of the bottling truck. We’ll show you how it all went down!
