Testarossa Winery located in Los Gatos, California recently purchased a new GAI Automated Bottling line from Prospero Equipment Corporation. Andy Robinson, the Sales Representative for Southern California, Colorado, Texas, and Mexico was responsible for the Testarossa Winery project. The bottling line design has offered Testarossa separation between rooms; from the warehouse bottle pack on and off, and the clean room for bottling machines. This design inspired the course of action to allow the machines to be set in a newly painted, perfectly lighted, beautiful bottling room.
GAI machinery; offers the highest quality bottling available, offering many bottling procedure combinations. The purchase of the GAI 3006Top and the GAI 6060 Labeler has provided the entire bottling process to be completed within two machines. This simplicity combined with the highest quality engineering has made for a solid long term investment for a company that is setting the pace in the California wine industry.
Testarossa chose the GAI bottling line from Prospero largely due to the machine’s flexibility to not only due a great job of bottling traditional cork finished wines, but to also be able to easily change over to bottle wines with more modern Stelvin and Stelvin Lux+ closures. Testarossa will not only be bottling high quality wines under the Testarossa label but will also be making and bottling wines for other wineries, retailer and restaurants.
Prospero, GAI and Testarossa Winery are excited about the future growth of the wine industry and increasing the quality of the wine industry through fine winemaking, GAI machinery and the continued support of Prospero Equipment Corporation.
“One compelling reason I chose AWS/Prospero for our GAI bottling line was Andy Robinson's passion for the products he represents. This passion demonstrated a level of customer service and attention to detail I normally do not encounter in the wine industry. The GAI bottling line provided us a great value for the technology. Our new bottling line exceeded my high expectations and I would strongly recommend GAI products."
