Blue Moon Mobile Bottling is a mobile bottling line that has serviced the local wine industry for the last 10 years. Housed in a 35 foot gooseneck trailer, our bottling line is designed for the small farm winery and is capable of running up to 3000 bottles an hour.
You might say it was meant to be. Virginia was in need of another mobile bottling line and Oley and Judy Olsen had a history tracing back to the Virginia Wine Industry. After meeting at a Virginia Wine Festival in 1989, they moved to Chicago where they lived for eleven years before moving back to their native state, and eventually back to what brought them together in the first place—Virginia wine.
Why Choose Us?
You have choices for bottling, so why should you choose us?
Stuff happens. For this reason we try to leave at least two days each month (more in winter months when weather can be problematic) open so that we have room to re-schedule should there be a problem. Those days can also be used for maintenance. One thing we've learned over the last 10 years is that you never know what's going to happen and a certain amount of flexibility is a necessity.
Packaging. We have a package design expert, with a lot of wine and spirit experience, on staff. She knows the major print suppliers, bottle suppliers, and capsule suppliers and has good relationships with them all. If there is a problem on bottling day with something in that realm, you can bet she will be making a phone call the following day and trying to get some answers to solve the problem.
Education. Over the past 10 years we've seen and learned a lot. But we certainly don't know everything. Thanks to great supplier relationships we know who to call when we need answers. We like to share that with our customers and have helped sponsor TTB labeling seminars in the past and are currently working on a filtration seminar. There is always more to learn.
