Last Summer we added the bag-in-a-box method as a choice in bottling your wine. With the use of the bag-in-a-box systemthere is no longer any work involving in cleaning, storing or hauling bottles, and at no extra cost for the bags. The reusable, custom made wooden box can be purchased at $19.95.

When the wine is consumed no air enters the bag keeping your wine safe from the harmful effects of oxidation, ensuring a better shelf life of your wine.

Each bag holds 4.5 L of wine. If your interested in the bag-in-a-box and would still prefer some bottles, batches are not required to be prepared purely in bottles or bags. All the batches have the availability to be placed in a mixture of the two according to individual preference.
