The magic of bottling wine
The magic of bottling wine dates back to ancient times and is a tradition which has been passed down from generation to generation. During the bottling phase, nothing is left to chance. Even weather and astral conditions play a fundamental role.
Wine bottling and weather conditions
In order for the wine to go from the barrel to the bottle without any trauma, the day chosen for bottling must be sunny, without a hint of wind and not too cold.
Wine bottling and astral conditions
Before the era of weather forecasting, farmers would rely on the sky! For bottling wine, their astral guide was the Moon.
The Moon and its phases (the First Quarter, the Full Moon and the Last Quarter) influence wine bottling.
- During the First Quarter, sparkling wines are bottled
- In the phase of the Full Moon, all types of wines are bottled
- Older wines are bottled in the phase of the Last Quarter of the Moon
It is for this reason that wine bottling follows a specific moon calendar, and the best moment can be chosen for each type of wine.
