Concrete wine tanks Paso Robles and Everywhere!
Nestled in southern California near Paso Robles, a company called Vino Vessel inc. is creating a revolutionary new system of wine fermentation and storage. Vino Vessel is the first company in the United States that specializes in using Concrete wine tanks. Concrete wine tanks are definitely something that will change the way you see your entire wine making process.
Paso Robles Concrete wine tanks have several distinct advantages over traditional oak barrels, or the newer stainless steel casks.
Concrete wine tanks combine the beneficial oxygenation qualities of oak with the efficiency and durability of stainless steel, Vino Vessel offers a uniquely cost-effective solution for the fermentation and aging of fine wines.
During the fermentation process it is crucial to have some oxygen involved in the mix. When correctly applied, oxygen interacts with both the yeast and the wine. If there is too much oxygen it causes problems, and results in a dead and flat tasting wine, if there’s not enough oxygen it doesn’t ferment correctly and tastes terrible.
Paso Robles Concrete wine tanks are far and above the best option for natural oxidization, as the stainless steel vessels and fermenters are too airtight to be good for this sort of thing. Your stainless steel fermenter needs air forced in for oxygenation, whereas the concrete one will naturally allow the correct amount of air in.
Traditional wineries use Oak Barrels for their fermentation and storage. Oak used to be considered the best because of the way it let in the oxygen and left a specific and delicious flavor. Oak barrels are in fact very good at naturally oxygenizing the fermenting wine, but it comes with a serious downside.
Oak wine vessels are much more of a struggle to keep clean without damaging them. Stainless steel has the benefit of being easily sanitized; whereas the oak barrels are much more difficult, meaning you’ll have to replace them more often. Vino Vessels concrete wine tanks are just as easy to clean as the stainless steel ones, with all the beautiful benefits of the natural oxidization.
