A mobile bottling unit in action


Most wineries can’t afford to invest in their own bottling facilities and so they arrange mobile units to visit them. These trailers are generally dropped off at the winery for as long as necessary and are regarded as the most efficient and hygienic way to bottle wines (if you don’t have a fancy, modern facility at the winery).

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
