In addition to our bottled shiners and custom wine production services, Texas Custom Wine Works offers contract bottling and canning services for those who already have the wine and need help getting it into bottles or cans.
Texas Custom Wine Work believes in the utmost importance in quality control. All wines crafted or bottled at Texas Custom Wine Works are subject to rigorous protocols and standards for quality and safety. Our experienced staff of Quality Control professionals use stringent oversight methods to assure quality, meet our client's specifications and comply with all government regulations. Our contract bottling and canning services are designed to provide the Texas wine industry with affordable, high quality bottling service with flexible options. Refer to our Wine Labeling Requirements page for information regarding ordering labels.
Our low 112 case (275 gallon) minimum makes it easy to get your wine into bottles. In most cases, Texas Custom Wine Works supplies the materials, but client supplies the labels (see our Wine Labeling Requirements before ordering your labels).
Each product must have label approval from the Federal (TTB) and the state (TABC). We charge a one time fee of $120.00 per label to submit to both entities. This is a federal and state requirement for any winery and the labels must be submitted by the bottler.
If you prefer to leave our name off of the label, we can file for a Fictitious Business Name on our bond which costs $160.00 and takes approximately 4-6 weeks or more depending on processing time frames.
Your Wine, Our Line!
Texas custom Wine Works bottling services is available for wineries and other beverage producers. Our low minimum requirements of only 2 pallets (275 gallons) make it easy to get started. Bring us your wine or buy some of ours. We offer complete component sourcing, recipe development and on-site lab services. Customized blending, juice, flavorings, color, etc are also available.
Texas' only wine bottling line capable of producing carbonated wines and carbonated beverages. Our inline carbonation allows for easy production of lightly carbonated "frizzante" styles all the way up to fully carbonated "Sparkling" or "Champagne" styles. Choose from a variety of packages including traditional Champagne bottle with mushroom cork and wire hood, Stelvin screw cap or even beer bottle style 26mm crown cap.
Once formula and label approval is complete and customer purchases labels and they are received by us, we will require a 50% deposit of our projected estimate to begin the process. We consider receipt of the down payment as the start date of the project.
New products generally take 90-120 days from receipt of down payment. Re-orders generally require 45-60 days from receipt of down payment. Re-orders will be built using available wines and may not be an exact blend, vintage or varietal as a previous order. Our wine maker will match as closely as possible based on variables such as PH, TA, flavor profile and mouthfeel.
The final bill will vary slightly from the starting quote based on the finished case count and will be adjusted accordingly after production. Wine will not be released for pick-up or shipping until final bill is paid in full and product is released from TCWW QC hold.
Both TTB registry number and TABC “G” permit number are required before any wine can be shipped or picked-up.
Ship out / Pick-up
Once production is completed, released from QC hold and final payment has been made, the product will be released for pick-up. Third-party shipping will be arranged by either the customer or TCWW. The customer is liable for all freight charges incurred. We require a minimum of 2 days notice before pick-up to prepare the product.
All wines bottled by TCWW will be placed on mandatory Quality Control (QC) Hold. This QC Hold is generally for a 2 to 3-week period to test bottle sterility. Wines will not be considered client-ready until this QC hold period has been completed.
Wine which has been bottled but not picked up after ten (10) days, following release from QC Hold, will be moved from the loading docks and into TCWW’s Warehouse and a Case Inbound Fee will be applied and Storage Costs will begin to accumulate. TCWW does not pro-rate it’s storage fees, so the cost will be the same whether the wine is in storage for one (1) day or the entire month.
