Maximize savings with our wine concrete tanks

Its thermal inertia prevents sudden changes in temperature, which provides energy savings. In addition, it requires less work dedicated to supervision and replacement.

A unique manufacturing process

Our concrete wine tanks are not only aesthetically attractive, but even our concrete is different. We use a unique double-layer concrete system that makes our tanks superior in strength and also in durability.

Why does the terroir stand out with our tanks?

Concrete is a neutral material, which allows expressing the characteristics and typicity of the terroir. With our concrete tanks, the fruit is enhanced, and the wine is supported to express its authentic terroir.

10-year anti-cracks guarantee

The robustness of our tanks, thanks to their double-layer structure, makes them a more durable option. For this reason, we offer a ten-year guarantee against cracks and leaks on all our concrete tanks.
