Grochau

I helped out John Grochau bottle some Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir today at his winery in the NW industrial area. He had rented an on site bottling line. This was a trailer about 20 feet long with the most amazing stainless steel and teflon machinery. It's speed was limited only by the human inputs and outputs, but we got it going at about 1 bottle per second! We bottled in 4.5 hours perhaps 6000 bottles. Unfortunately I don't have a more dramatic photo. When we were bottling there was no time for photos.
