Better Flavor!

SEE FEATURES & BENEFITS

Shown above, at the first annual Innovation + Quality event in Napa, 400 winemakers tasted wine fermented in concrete, oak, and steel. Concrete was the clear winner.

Winemakers worldwide have rediscovered the superior quality of wine made in concrete.

Concrete breathes like oak, giving the wine delicious complexity and enhanced mouthfeel with a hint of crisp minerality and no added  flavors to mask the fruit. This brings the pure fruit flavor forward, allowing the wine to showcase its true terroir and taste more like where it is from.

Additionally, the quality of oak  degrades as you use it, while concrete always gives peak flavor and will produce ten times as much wine as oak.

Want to make great wine? Use concrete NuBarrels™ for aging, blending and small-batch fermentation.

INQUIRIES

Huge Savings!

SEE FEATURES & BENEFITS

One concrete NuBarrel™ should ultimately

yield as much wine as 40 oak barrels

Oak barrels will last a few years.

Concrete NuBarrels will last

a few decades...

The arithmetic is compelling.

One concrete NuBarrel™ holds as much wine as four oak barrels. It will cost a little more initially,

but it will still be producing wine long after the

oak barrels are being used as planters.

Concrete NuBarrels™ also require less labor to manage and clean, they take less space, and

they make fabulous wine.

How much did your winery spend

on oak last year?

"We shoot our capital budget every year on barrels. That’s the elephant.

Then the little bit of money we have left over we can spend on other things to make our wine better, but barrels eat-up all of our capital, and then they depreciate so quickly.

Five or six years later they’re going out of here, and it’s a disposal problem almost, so these (NuBarrels™) just give us a lot more options."

Less Floor Space

SEE FEATURES & BENEFITS

Concrete NuBarrels™

Require a Third Less of Your

Precious Warehouse Floor Space

NuBarrels™ stack and bolt together in pairs, resulting in increased efficiency which can give you a third more yield per square-foot of warehouse space.

This configuration has passed rigorous shake testing at the UC Berkeley Seismological Testing Center.

The engineered framework can result in even greater efficiency and higher yield.

Easier To Use

SEE FEATURES & BENEFITS

Less is More!

Less Hassle, Less Labor, Less Water...

How is your labor cost in managing all those oak barrels? Ready to save some money? Labor is an area of savings that you will notice right away.

Concrete NuBarrels™ usually only have to be topped once, and that can be done without moving the tank. The same is true for cleaning, filling and draining: all can be done in place.

One NuBarrel™ holds as much wine as four oak barrels, but cleaning one concrete NuBarrel™ is much easier than cleaning four oak barrels. The process also requires less water.

Complete Control

SEE FEATURES & BENEFITS

Whether you like a strong

oak component, just a hint of oak,

or no oak at all...

Shown are two features giving the winemaker much greater control of the oak flavor in wine.

For a full and robust oak presence, there is an oak stave array. The stainless steel immersion sleeve utilizes chips for a more subtle character. You can even adjust your level of oak during fermentation or aging.

We also offer an optional sparging stone to control oxygenation.
