Our specialty is the production of round and oval barrels for fermentation and maturation of red and white wines. Also we resort on a long-standing experience in the vinegar and spirits storage within wooden containers.
At the heart of the company are our round and oval drums, which form the core of our production. For the production, the staves for the individual barrels are elastically bent by controlled fire and the necessary moistening by water and thereby bent into your desired shape. Subsequently, a uniform temperature is ensured by a controlled temperature.
We offer the classic closed fermenting stands, which serve for fermenting and ripening the wine, the simple open stands that only serve for fermentation, as well as the new evolution with a stainless floor and lid. All of these fermenters are equipped with various accessories to simplify their use.
We produce oak barrels in the classic forms from 225ltr to 500ltr. It uses mainly oak from the best forests in Europe, but also acacia, cherry, chestnut, ash or mulberry can be processed. The staves are split and are naturally dried, depending on the origin and degree of maturity of the staves, we can offer different possibilities for the expansion with different toastings.
