Today we spent a few hours learning from him about some different wines, how they are aged, and the different unique things his business does. He sells to hotels such as the Beverly Hotel, Trump Golf Course, Four Seasons etc... So you see, very exclusive...The older kids got to wine taste a few of his wines. He also gave Veronica and I our own bottles of wine for when we turn 21... he was very generous...
He then showed us how they bottle the wines, cork them and label them. We got to do a few of our own. It was quite fun! Here's the process...
We begin with filling the empty bottles with wine:
We then put a cork in it with this machine:
Then the label is applied and the wax seals the top:
Once we finished up there we then went out to lunch with him to a nice little local restaurant and got a good burger! It was lots of fun.
