Bravura - Wax Seal Application

Every bottle of "Bravura" is hand waxed. This means a very labor intensive process of applying a little wax to the top of the cork, then dipping the neck of the bottle into the hot wax just long enough to adhere to the bottle. Then to prevent the wax from running, the bottle is immediately placed in cold water to freeze the wax and prevent the wine from injury due to the hot wax dipping. Each bottle (3,584 total) will go through this process.
