Wine Bottling: The Finishing Touch to Your Custom Wine
Whether you are a wine connoisseur or a novice appreciator of good wine, wine bottling and making your own wine can be intriguing. Not only is creating your own wine an exciting experimental process, but it is also a great learning tool as well. You want to make sure that you understand each phase and what is needed to accomplish the task, from making the wine, to bottling it and to wine corking. Each part has its own process, but they come together to form a beautifully hand-crafted product. To assist you in the process, there are top quality brands, such as Wine Cooler Direct, that provide a variety of products for every step.
A Uniquely Created Original Product
When making your own wine you get to decide many of the various factors that affect the process, including the flavors that will be fused into it, the tools used to fuse the wine, the bottle that will be used to store it, the corks that will seal it and even the labels that will accompany it. All of these choices have an effect on the end result of the wine. For instance, a bottle shape that allows more air in when opened can increase the chances of oxidation. If the wine you are cultivating is better when it is allowed to breathe, this can be very helpful. Also, specific corks may work better with certain bottles, so having the right cork can help make sure that your bottle is properly sealed. If you plan to allow your wine to sit over time, the bottle color may be a factor as well; colored bottles can help to prevent direct light exposure, which can lengthen the life of red wines.
In order to create a great product there are a few things that you should keep in mind. One, you want to take time to understand flavor pairings. This will allow you to concoct a tasty blend of flavors for your own unique wine. Two, you should figure out what type of wine bottling and wine corking process works best for the wine that you are making. When making white wine the bottling process and type of bottle may be different than when making red wine. Take time to understand the differences. Three, begin to put your knowledge to work. This is the fun part- actually making the wine. It is suggested that you taste the wine directly after you have made it to get a feel for how it will taste once it has had time to mature. Finally, keep experimenting! Creating anything perfectly takes time. Learn what you can from each process and become a better crafter.
Over time you can become an expert wine connoisseur and creator. With the right knowledge, tools and experience you can begin to create delicious wine creations, or develop the perfect wine taste for your pallet. Having the right tools can be critical in some aspects of the process. Take some time and browse through the excellent selection available and see how Wine Cooler Direct products can enhance your winemaking and bottling experience.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
