Bertolaso is for us a historical partner as well as one of the most important manufacturers of bottling machines worldwide, but this was not the main reason why we chose to keep working with them.
When we had to purchase a new filling machine we decided to evaluate the most important companies in the wine industry in an “aseptic” manner, so to speak, without any prior conditioning.
Of course we were very pleased when we actually decided to keep collaborating with Bertolaso, also due to the human relationships they have been able to establish with us over the years, but our decision was based only on technical reasons: we were really taken by their innovative solutions as well as by the proposed machines.
During the almost 15 years passed since we purchased the previous filler there have been many upgrades, starting from the filling valves. We decided for an isobaric machine capable to fill both still wines (15.000 bottles per hour) and sparkling wines (10. 000 bottles per hour).
This new filling machine will become part of our main bottling line, that will primarely run large amounts of bottles and will be assembled at the beginning of 2017 in a facility we are building on purpose. The old isobaric filler, that is also from Bertolaso, will still run smaller amounts of bottles that could not be run on the new machine. This renewed collaboration has confirmed that with our choices in the past we did the right thing.
