Yes, it is actually amazing to see all the bottles... You should do yourself a favour and walk into Consol's warehouse...
Sorry Consol, but we only use 4-5 pallets per year. But hopefully in the near future we will up our order... you never know, maybe we take 6 next year!

You must have a serious passion for wine when you are willing to go through all the processes and efforts of small scale winemaking. Every single bottle is hand labelled with a front and back label, capped and then the last step, a very small but meaningful label... the SAWIS seal (South African Wine Information Systems) (Wine and Spirit Board - Certified)

After the wine has spend 12 -- 16 months in the barrel and we are happy with the quality, flavours, extraction, maturation and stability, we will fill and cork the bottles. Once again a labour intensive process. We basically pump the wine to a stainless steel tank which also functions as a final racking. The wine will go through the filters and into the bottles. It is of extreme importance to ensure the bottles are 100% clean. Before we cork each bottle by hand we will give the wine a minute to settle and a small quantity of N2 or CO2 to prevent any possible oxidation in the bottle... ready for labelling...(Filmed with a cell phone)

Big day... after three years our labels are finally at the printers. Colour is perfect and the font is clear and ... yes, we've checked the spelling!
