AHEAD OF THE CURVE:
Vino Vessel is the first company in the United States to usher concrete winemaking tanks into the 21st century, harnessing concrete’s timeless benefits while meeting today’s standards of sanitation, durability and portability. Our modern concrete tanks ultimately represent the best of both winemaking worlds, merging numerous qualities of oak and stainless steel while offering several distinct advantages over both.
With Vino Vessel, you can ultimately achieve comparable quality to wines crafted in oak or steel, but with added energy efficiency and cost effectiveness.
Comparisons to Oak
Like oak barrels and uprights, our modern concrete tanks allow for the natural oxygenation of wine, which is the primary benefit of oak aging. The effect is similar to maturing a wine in neutral oak barrels, to achieve a specific style or to develop strategic blending components.
Advantages over Oak
- More affordable storage per gallon
- Easier to clean and sanitize
- Less space intensive
- Less labor intensive
- Longer lasting
Comparisons to Stainless Steel
Like stainless steel, our neutral concrete tanks are easy to clean and sanitize, and they come in a wide variety of styles and capacities with standardized fittings. The lifespan of our tanks also rivals stainless steel.
Advantages over Stainless Steel
- Natural oxygenation for enhanced wine maturation
- Reduces refrigeration costs
