After successfully refining and tinkering with wine making or brewing as a hobby, (and many tastings later), many passionate amateur vintners and home brewers are taking their beverages to market. Surprisingly, one of the biggest challenges boutique wine businesses must deal with is the labelling of their wine bottles. Many of them have to outsource the labelling to other companies, and this often comes at a high cost.

Finding the right solution for their labelling was a significant turning point. The Tumut River Co made use of the innovative print and apply solution from Great Engineering, an Australian-based company that makes bottle label applicators and Epson Printers.
