“I have been working Rick and the Ultima Mobile Bottling team for over 5 years. They have bottled over 400 different wines for us in all weather conditions and with every conceivable package, and in all this time we have never had a bad bottling day. Ultima is the best! Always professional, always courteous and always prepared to meet our needs.”
“Ultima bottling continuously goes above and beyond the call of duty to insure each run is done efficiently while keeping wine quality the number one priority”
Brian Brakesman, Winemaker
“We have worked exclusively with Ultima for over six years. After trying various mobile bottling companies, Ultima stood out with their experience and professionalism. Ultima arrives at our winery for every run with a friendly staff, on-time start up, low DO’s and puts out great-looking product. Our bottling runs are very organized and efficient. Their operators have tremendous experience and when confronted with difficult packages, they approach the issues methodically and get it done right every time.
The attention to detail and professionalism of their operators and crew is only one of the reasons we only bottle with Ultima. The Ultima team has become part of the Martin Ray family and they have directly contributed to our growth and success.
As owners of our own new bottling line, Rick Lewis and the Ultima team has been our first stop for training and advice.
Bottling is really the final step in the winemaking process and bottlers like Ultima make it easy and really give the wines the attention they deserve”
“They run a winery in addition to a mobile bottling operation- They understand the big picture. Their operators are energetic, patient and when problems occur, they are into solving them not pointing fingers. The lines are well maintained and upgraded. We have used Ultima for the past 5 years and look forward to the next five”
Jeff Hinchliffe, Winemaker
“We started working with Ultima two years ago. The bottling technicians are well trained, very knowledgeable and their equipment is state of the art. They take customer service to the next level- by that I mean that they've bailed me out of many a tight spot! Always a pleasure to work with Rick Lewis and his team”
Daniel Fitzgerald, Winemaker
"I find that in our business, what most differentiates suppliers is not their particular equipment or the technical specifications of what they offer, but their commitment to customer service and the ease of working with their staff and management. Ultima has always shown a flexibility and willingness to accommodate our specific (and probably sometimes neurotic) needs that is becoming all too rare in the business world. The staff is excellent technically, but more importantly, has the pride and ethic to do their best to make the customer happy.
We have had many completely seamless bottling runs with Ultima, but we all know that the weirdest and most frustrating problems can also crop up in bottling - whether it be from labels, glass issues, capsule fit or whatever. The comfort I have in working with Ultima is that they make creative and sincere efforts to solve issues rather than make excuses for why they should be someone else's problem. I've learned that I work with the people I trust personally, and that's why I keep coming back to Rick and the team at Ultima."
