Before popping a bottle open to enjoy, here are a few simple steps to get that natural sediment out. Donkey & Goat’s Pet’ Nat may be slightly tricky to open, but the effort is worth the reward!
How to properly open a bottle of Lily’s Cuvee:
First, place the bottle upside down on its stand and put in the fridge. Leave until all sediment has settled in the neck and the wine is clear. This will take around 24 hours.
Second, carefully move your bottle to a sink or a bucket filled with 4-6 inches of water (enough to cover the neck) while holding it upside down.
Fourth, watch for the sediment to fall out and quickly turn the bottle right side up! The wine should be clear.
