Fermentation tanks (1990).
All our wine tanks are stainless steel manufactured and lean on legs to allow perfect cleaning around them.
We use eight (8) specialized stainless tanks to do wine fermentation. The capacity of this tanks is 12.500 l. Due to its appropriate height to diameter ratio the relationship volume to external surface allow a correct fermentation temperature control. Therefore, the size of this tanks is the most appropriate for high quality varietal wines elaboration. In addition, this tanks are equipped with a simple water shower system to cool them during the fermentation. To empty the tanks, the lower mouth have been designed to reduce the cost of removing the "hollejos", in addition to offering more security when operating.
We used other two (2) higher tanks for coupages. The capacity of each one is 37.500 l. Additionally we used several 26.400 l. capacity tanks for wines.
Moreover, we own other stainless tanks of small capacity.
