We recently had the opportunity to experience bottling wine at Wedding Oak Winery. Very cool to see the wine bottling truck back into the facility and the operation get under way. Great concept too, as you rent the bottling equipment and that cuts down capital costs. Not only did we get to bottle some of the wines we already love from Wedding Oak but we also got to bottle wine for a new startup winery, Star of Texas Winery, opening in Early, Texas this year! Brian and Moira were just awesome people, full of excitement and enthusiasm for the Texas Wine Industry. So refreshing to see people with their boots on the ground, working hard to get a family-owned operation up and running. I hope to spend some time with them in their tasting room in the near future!
It's great to see a wine-loving community come together and volunteer to get the bottling done, the volunteer jobs varied from labeling, boxing, and stacking. Nothing labor intensive and the best part is each volunteer was rewarded with a delicious bottle of wine at the end as a token of appreciation.
Thank you to Wedding Oak Winery for this fun opportunity and we look forward to the day that it is our wine being put into those bottles!
