We are one of the largest and most modern contract wine bottlers in Europe. We operate 7 high tech filling lines 24 hours, 6 days a week, capable of filling over 90,000 bottles and boxes of wine an hour. Our customers include well known international brands, retailers and supermarkets, with wine being filled for all sectors of the domestic and export markets.
We are constantly reinvesting in our equipment, upgrading and replacing our machinery to stay at the forefront of wine bottling innovation. This is achieved through ongoing investment in the newest machinery from specialist manufacturers, made to our specifications and requirements. This is a major part of our focus on quality and attention to detail.
Our state of the art filling lines are capable of filling a variety of packaging including 187ml single serve, 70cl, 75cl and 1 litres in glass and PET. We also have the UK’s only wine-specific TetraPak filling line. Our pre and post gas management systems offer second-to-none shelf-life in UK wine filling.
Being a sustainable business is very important to us and our customers. We are predominantly powered by renewable wind energy generated by our three on-site wind turbines. The bottles we fill are made from partly recycled glass and both these and our entire TetraPak packaging is recyclable. Through our partners we recycle our waste and surplus packaging materials including plastic, cardboard, label reels, caps and glass.
We pride ourselves on our outstanding quality and attention to detail, and are one of the only facilities to be BRC Grade AA+ rated. We follow strict health, safety and hygiene standards, all helping to ensure wine filled by us leaves in the best possible condition.
The quality of our finished product needs to be of the highest possible standard, a task our QA team works hard to achieve and maintain. Our onsite lab uses two Foss Winescan machines to analyse wine at various stages during the wine handling process. The machines measure levels of SO2, sugar, preservatives, acidity, colour, ABV, clarity and PH. Read more about the Foss Winescan here
