English term for containers (also waste bins or garbage containers). In viticulture, this means - especially in Australia and New Zealand - a certain and mostly limited amount (batch) of wine, which has been vinified or expanded in a certain way and is kept in a limited area (section) of the cellar , This can be, for example, a certain barrel (barrels) or a certain number of bottles (Boxes). This quantity of wine, or the cellar section / area or storage location is provided with a bin number to identify it. Different bin numbers of the same original wine can thus represent different types of aging, wine styles or different qualities. In some cases, a bin number is already assigned to the vintage awarded for a certain, selected amount of grapes (vine container), which is then processed separately and specifically. It is also common on the label to quote the bin number, which allows clear conclusions to be drawn, for example, on the type of winemaking.
