Smells greet you at Elk Run Winery near Taylorsville. Not bad ones, you understand. The odor is one of wet grass and fertilizer and growing things and grapes, the perfume of a vineyard. But it's, well, noticeable.In the small building owners Fred and Carol Wilson use for bottling, the sweet smell of wine is stronger, almost overpowering. The wine flows from storage tanks through clear pipes, and comes out in spigots at a machine called a bottler.Six bottles are filled at a time; corks and air seals are added, and bottles are packed into crates.
