Bottling at the Château – in pictures

From the sublime to the ridiculous, really. Given that we’d cleared the decks of red, white and rosé, it’s a perfect time to bottle the new vintages. We’ve been busy blending and bottling the equivalent of over 20,000 6-packs at the chateau. The team, partly our lot and partly the same outside contractor that we’ve used for some years, finished the bottling yesterday. If you happen to call, forgive our slight deafness: the clinking sound might be ringing in our heads for some time yet.
