Busy schedules



Are you always on the run and you feel that you no longer spend enough time with your special someone? No matter how hectic you are right now, spending a few minutes to send your partner a bottle of wine to remind this person how much he or she means to you is a golden opportunity to re-affirm your love.

Wine is a fitting way to express your pride and fulfillment over an accomplishment or that of someone that is very dear to you. A great way to celebrate the present and look toward the future with optimism and resolve.




These are some of the themes that you can incorporate into your very own design. Don't limit yourself to conventional ideas, use your imagination and creativity to come up with something that is truly unique and special. There is nothing better than giving a gift to someone special that you designed yourself. That person will appreciate your gift all the more since it is one of a kind and truly a labor of love on your part.



Using about a yard and a half of surgical rubber tubing or plastic tubing, siphoning is a very simple operation. First, put the bottles or jars of wine on a table and the empty bottles on a stool or box on the floor. Next, put one end of the tubing in the first bottle of wine and suck the other end of the tube until the wine comes; pinch the tube at your lips and - holding on tight - put this end in the empty bottle and then let the wine flow. As the level of the wine falls, lower the tube into it, being careful not to let it touch the lees. When nearly all of the wine has been transferred, pinch the tube at the neck of both bottles, put one end into the next bottle and allow the wine to flow again.
