I'm Anna Maria Knapp, owner of Celebration's Wine Club. We're located here at Barossa Vineyards and winery here in beautiful Napa Valley and our topic is how to sanitize wine bottles, a very important topic sanitization in general because everything has to be meticulously clean that comes in contact with the wine that you might be making in order to avoid off flavors. Vic Barossa, owner of Barossa Vineyards is going to show us how to sanitize wine bottles. Of the many challenges that home winemakers face, clean bottles is one of them. If you use a brand new bottle, they're only about 50 cents a piece. If you recirculate used bottles, you have a challenge getting anything out of the inside of the bottle that may have stuck to the inside of the glass, even with the cleanliness project that we're going to show you today, sanitizing wine bottles, new bottles is way better and you still have to sanitize those. So we're going to use about a teaspoon of SO-2 and about a half gallon of water and mix that up a little bit and then you take your wine bottle and you put it on top, get a few squashes in there, that just shot water and SO-2 into the bottle which is a perfect sanitizer for wine. That's how to sanitize wine bottles. I'm Anna Maria Knapp, owner of Celebration's Wine Club.
