Clos LaChance Winery has launched a mobile bottling line in the US.

The California-based company said today (4 October) that Bay Area Bottling Services, which it recently purchased from Mission Bottling, offers key features required to bottle wine, including labelling services at 50 bottles per minute and experienced on-site bottling line operators.

Clos LaChance director of winemaking Stephen Tebb said: "We have used the mobile Mission Bottling line for several years now and I can assure you that it's exactly what winemakers need to maintain a high standard of quality in the bottle."

Clos LaChance owner Bill Murphy added: "Managing a growing family-owned wine business, I know first hand how expensive bottling lines are to own, operate and maintain. Our goal with Bay Area Bottling Services is to provide a cost effective, state-of-the-art bottling line solution to wineries that cannot afford to build their own, or prefer to invest in other areas of the company."
