Riddling System Introduction

Riddling Machine is a simple, compact, versatile and a reliable System to process riddling stage of Champagne/Sparkling wine production. Machine is supporting traditional way “Méthode Champenoise” of wine development and has mainly three operations; Bottle Tilting, Bottle Rotation and Vibration. Wine filled bottles before riddling process to be placed on bottle holders while machine at “home” position and Process cycle parameters input into Micro Processor Controller as required by wine production regulations/traditions. By pressing cycle “Start” button machine automatically detect 0 degree and start process as per PLC cycle preloaded in Controller. Tower green light begins to blinks while Machine in operation mode. After completion of cycle audio sound alarm is buzzed indicating the end of the cycle. At that time bottles will be on 90 degree position. Pressing “home” position button allows to offload the bottles for further wine production stages.

Machine Operation Description

  • Power on the machine
  • Ensure the machine in Auto mod
  • Press home (i.e. 45° ) position pushbutto
  • Load the bottle
  • Press Cycle start push button. Machine detects 0° and Starts Cycle as per PLC program
  • Tower light blinks green while cycle Star
  • Alarm buzzer indicates completion of cycle (90° ) and tower light off
  • To off load bottles, Press Home Position
  • In case of Emergency Pressed and release during Cycle, Cycle will continue from where it was stopped.


  • Simple, compact to operat
  • Easy Bottle Load/ Off load positio
  • Process visibility, Inspection during cycle
  • Software based Cycle program
  • Machine test- manual testing facility
  • Optional Acrylic Cabinet/ cover
