What makes our concrete tanks so unique?
Our unique manufacturing process, customization and our attention to detail.
Our line of tanks for wine is inspired by the Roman Amphorae, redesigned and updated. They are tanks that reflect the spirit that has characterized SAS products for over a hundred years and Sonoma Cast Stone for more than twenty years.
Concrete wine tanks with details that make the difference
We manufacture our tanks with a smooth interior and exterior surface, perfect for easy cleaning and to help minimize maintenance time and effort.
Total customization of your wine tanks for maximum comfort
All of our tank models allow you to customize the accessories, supports and colours. It is even possible to include the winery’s logo in the tanks.
Tanks with a unique manufacturing process
The wine tanks from Sonoma by SAS have a double layer that helps oxygenate the wine and, in turn, protects its exterior. In the external layer, we include the colour in mass, which ensures that our clients do not have to paint their concrete tanks from time to time.
Thanks to its porosity, it is often said that concrete “breathes”. This characteristic of our tanks gives the wine better organoleptic attributes.
In ageing, the concrete allows the wines to be micro-oxygenated without the aromatic impact of the wood.
Resistance and durability
Our concrete wine tanks are not only aesthetically attractive, but even our concrete is different. We use a unique double-layer concrete system in our wine tanks that make them superior in strength and durability.

“At DeLoach Vineyards we have been trialing the NuBarrel for the last several vintages and have been impressed with what they have lent to our wines. Besides giving us an optimal size for small lot fermentations, it also lends a minerality and beneficial textural element to our Chardonnay, while preserving more fruit characteristics in aromatic wines than we would see in oak barrels. Overall we feel it captures the texture and softening effects of traditional barrel fermentation while capturing the purity of fruit we expect from stainless steel.”
Winemaker, Deloach Vineyards
“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, so these NuBarrels just give us a lot more options.”
Owner, Frog’s Leap
“For our Matanzas Creek Helena Bench Sauvignon Blanc, the concrete egg fermentation is a critical component that enhances minerality. In this wine, the minerality expresses as river rocks from the terroir of the foots of mountain St. Helena where the grapes come from.”
Winemaker, Matanzas Creek
“Concrete gives the wine the weight and texture of a barrel fermentation, but rather than tasting like a barrel, the wine tastes like where it was grown.”
Winemaker, Wind Gap
“I designed this whole building around my Sonoma Cast Stone Tanks.”
Winemaker, Zialena Winery
“I’m already blown away by the color density from concrete versus stainless steel.”
