English term for containers (also litter bins or waste containers). In viticulture, this is understood - especially in Australia and New Zealand - to mean a specific and usually limited quantity (batch) of a wine that has been vinified or aged in a specific way and is stored in a delimited area (section) of the cellar. This can be, for example, a specific barrel (casks) or a specific number of bottles
(crates). This quantity of wine, or the cellar section/area or storage place is given a bin number to identify it. Different bin numbers of the same original wine can thus represent different types of ageing, wine styles or even different qualities. In some cases, a bin number is also assigned during the grape harvest
for a certain, selected quantity of grapes (vine containers), which are then separated and specifically processed. It is also common practice to indicate the bin number on the label
, which allows clear conclusions to be drawn about, for example, the type of vinification.
