Bottling Day at Southeast Wine Collective
Member wineries at SE Division's bustling urban vino hub gather to get dirty, celebrate spring, and raise a glass to the 2013 vintage.
As one of Portland's hottest urban wineries, Division's SE Wine Collective brings together nine different sustainable winemakers from around the region, providing barrel storage for proper wine aging, custom crush facilities, and finally, the bi-annual bottling event where producers get to bottle and case up the fruits of their labor. Bottling day is the collective's most fun and interactive day—trucks park outside and volunteers pop by throughout the day, staying anywhere from ten minutes on their lunch break to three hours or more, stickering and boxing alongside the winemakers.
