Oak barrels are one of the biggest investments a winery will make.
Extending their life means big savings, amounting to thousands of dollars per year.
Sanitising wine barrels, with Nature's remarkable cleaner- pressurised, high temperature steam vapour releases all contaminants- including tartrates, tannins and scaling- from the barrel. The barrels become rehydrated, and lose any leftover old wine.
This is the optimum way to restore oak wine barrels and prolong their life. Eliminate Brettanomyces- the yeast compound which can alter the bouquet and palate of the wine.
Take a look at our range of specialist barrel handling equipment which would be an integral part of an optimised barrel cleaning system, configured to your winery and barrel throughput.
There's a steamer for every application, from small wineries to large operations.
The whole process revitalizes the wood barrels while being safe on the char of the oak. It's natural and kind to the environment. And remember- that means it looks after the environment where you grow your grapes.
Expect to use around 90% less water- so it's saving you money too!
