DetailsThis slick unit can be used for bottling both still & sparkling wine. The filler has a tapered fitting that accommodates 5/16”, 3/8” & 1/2” siphon hoses. To use, simply attach the siphon hose to the spigot on the bottling bucket & filler unit, turn the spigot on, push the button on the filler & the filling begins! When the bottle is full, the unit automatically shuts off. The rubber piece that goes into the bottle can be moved to adjust the fill level. The nut on the top of the unit allows regulation of the flow.

4.0 / 5.039 Reviewsworks greatbeen using mine for 2 years , only time I have a problem with it is when I put the bottles to far below the carboy then it spurts up threw the top of the siphon tube. Raise the fill station so the top of the bottle is even with or slightly below the bottom of the Carboy and it will work 100% perfect.February 1, 2013Ferrari Automatic Bottle FillerWorks great as long as you don't have your wine bottles to far below the vats. If the wine comes out to fast you will get some blow out from the top vent tube. I just stick the vent tube into an empty bottle and let it blow, that way I don't have any wast. I usually start out with the top of the bottles even with the bottom of my Carboy then when half way done raise the Carboy up 8". I have bottled at least 500 bottles with mine, I just broke the top vent tube cap and instead of gluing it back together for the price I am going to buy another.November 6, 2013Works well once you get used to itIts easy to use, and easy to clean. I've been using mine for years and love it. But if you aren't paying strict attention you will have a spill. If your flow tube isn't snug you will get some leaks, so use a little piece of plumbers tape. A lot better than using a siphon tube and clip.January 18, 2013Works as StatedI used this to bottle my first batch of wine. It worked okay after I got the used to the way it worked. It leaked at first until I figured out I had to adjust air flow by using the screw valve on top. It works okay but if I decide to make more wine than beer I would invest in a more expensive bottler source.November 25, 2013excellent productI have been using this for at least the past 5 years. Makes bottling easy. I do about 500 bottles a year. Great product._x000D_May 30, 2012Best One on the MarketI've bottled thousands of bottles over the last six years with one of these bad-boys. This product works great! It's fast, efficient and consistent. Once and a while I take it completely apart to thoroughly clean it. _x000D__x000D_I had an incident once when it wouldn't automatically shut off. The piece inside the tub at the bottom had turned around. Easy fix._x000D__x000D_With cheaper bottles, I've found it doesn't always create a seal because the bottleneck tends to be slightly deformed._x000D__x000D_With proper cleaning and regular maintenance, this tool will last a home brewer for 5+ years.February 19, 2013Its a great bottle fillerA great filler, it automatically shuts off when the bottle is full. After using it I wished I had bought it when I started wine making. I've used it for 2 years with no problems.April 14, 2013Its a neat tool when you finally master itThe filler makes almost no mess, it shuts off when it's supposed to, and is fast - I can bottle 25 bottles in under 15 minutes. The directions are not very good, so it takes a little playing around with it. But once you master it, its very good.August 25, 2013Really good for the priceYes, instructions might have been nice, but this isn't a particularly difficult device to figure out. And yes, there was a very small amount of leakage. But for the price, this is great. It is effective and makes this job pretty easy. Unless it wears out quickly (I've only used for two batches so far), it is easily worth the price.October 20, 2013Very good fillerAt first I had a hard time with it, and spilled some wine (the flow tube must be snug), but I figured it out and its a great filler. Its easy to use and to clean.December 13, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 16 answersCan this be used with a siphon?BEST ANSWER: It is a siphon, and yes it can be used with a siphon. Issue is - using a large tube can siphon faster without the auto bottle filler because the fillers pipe is smaller so it's goes a bit slower, but the fillers benefit is stopping flow in bottle automatically due to loss of air. For siphoning from carboy or barrel, use largest tube / pipe you can find. For bottle filling, get largest tube that fits bottle filler. Hope this helps.Have one of these, it keeps spitting out of the top. I try to adjust it with the top button. Any suggestions. Thanks.BEST ANSWER: I use the Ferrari bottle filer all the time when bottling wine. It does spit out the top sometimes I found that the bottom has to be securely put in neck of bottle if not air has a chance to enter causing updraft.Can this product be used in brewing beer?BEST ANSWER: Yes it can but it would add a lot of oxygen to the beer. We do not recommend it.
