McLaren Vale bottling line

Published:  23 July, 2008

Torresan Estate in South Australia's McLaren Vale is opening the region's first fully automated, environmentally friendly contract bottling facility.

The $15 million (6.4m) purpose-built line, capable of bottling 6,000 bottles an hour, will start production this month, servicing local wineries such as Tim Knappstein, Pirramimma and Gemtree as well as those further afield.

Owners John and Michael Torresan have been operating a small bottling line at their Happy Valley Winery in Onkaparinga since 1984, which will move to the new McLaren Vale premises.
