Artus Bottling takes your still wine and carbonates it, then packages it. This is the fastest and easiest method as it can be done in bulk.
Also known as the “tank method,” secondary fermentation occurs in a pressure tank. Once secondary fermentation is complete, the wine is fined, clarified, and bottled.
Widely recognized as the highest standard for sparkling wine production, the transformation from still to sparkling wine takes place entirely in bottle. The entire process can take up to a year and a half from start to finish. Artus Bottling offers services at every step:
Bottle En Tirage
Artus bottles the base wine (cuvee), with added yeast, sugar, and nutrients and closed with crown cap in preparation for secondary fermentation.
Don't have the space to store your methode traditionelle? Age your product with peace of mind at our secure facility until it is ready to riddle and disgorge.
Bottles of en tirage go through a multi-day process where they are slowly rotated until they end up inverted (on point), allowing the yeast and sediment to settle in the neck of the bottle.
The yeast and sediment is removed from the bottle and the bottle is closed with a cork and wire muselet or another crown cap. The bottles of finished product are washed, and can be foiled and labelled with a shoulder and body label.
