3- Food hoses
The hoses are necessary to move the must, the paste or the wine itself from one tank to another in the different processes of fermentation, stabilization, filtering, packaging… ..
4- Pumps for wine and oil
The ideal is to work by gravity , but this is not always possible, so we have to help ourselves with the impulse pumps. The pumps for wine or oil are special, because they do not hit the wine as much as the water pumps.
Although many times it is necessary … the less the wine moves through the pumps, the better.
5- Wine tanks
When buying a tank for winemaking we have to make sure that it is made of a material authorized for the use of food and that it is very easy to clean.
There are many food grade plastic tanks , but practice tells us that stainless steel is better for this purpose. Yes they are more expensive, but they also have a greater durability and we make sure that something that we are going to consume is made and kept in a suitable deposit for it.
6- Cork stoppers for wine
The cork stoppers come from the outer layer of the cork oak. It is a natural process that does not harm the tree. Later they are industrially processed to chop them and give them the desired shape of the stopper.
There are many models and qualities of cork.
Cork stoppers are a natural and ecological product.
We recommend these four types of cork stoppers for sale
7- Synthetic stoppers for wine
In the 90s, the synthetic stopper appeared as an alternative to the cork stopper. One of the advantages it has is the cost , since the cost of synthetic stoppers is much lower than those of cork.
Its elastic properties are to some degree even better than those of natural cork.
Buy synthetic caps for bottles
8- Foot corker
The cork stoppers cannot be inserted by hand, we need one of these little machines to put the cork in the bottle as needed. It is valid for both synthetic and natural plugs.
9- Capsules for wine bottles
Capsules are one of the final elements in winemaking. It is not only a decorative item, but it also helps to increase the hermiticity of the bottle. We propose some models of capsules:
10- Wine Bottles
What to say about the bottles …… without them we cannot pack our wine….
11- Yeasts and Metabisulfite
Yeasts play a fundamental role in the fermentation process . To start the fermentation they are necessary, since they are the ones that will transform the sugar into alcohol.
We can trust the native yeasts that naturally bring the grapes from the field, but many times they are not enough to start the fermentation, so a yeast sowing is usually done.
Metabisulfite (sulfurous) is a chemical compound that is used before starting fermentation, to disinfect our must before it begins to ferment. It is a total disinfectant that prevents us from having unwanted organisms in our fermentation process. The use of metabisulfite makes it necessary to plant yeast.
12- Oak wood chips
Aging is a long and delicate process that seeks to confer a series of sensory characters to a wine in order to increase its complexity in the mouth and increase its stability.
Traditionally, this process takes place inside wooden barrels.
Given the high cost and time required for this process, in recent years the use of chips has been proposed as an alternative .
We propose four models of French oak chips from least to most toasted for aging.
13- Fermentation measurement and control instruments
The fermentation of wine is a complex process, since many factors influence the fermentation process, and by doing things in the same way, the same product does not always come out.
Therefore, it is important to have the measurement instruments that help us to have greater control over this process and to carry out the necessary actions so that everything flows as we want.
Some basic measuring instruments for the elaboration are:
14- Pressure washers
The hygiene in the winery is one of the direct factors related to the quality of the wine . A clean cellar and utensils will not negatively interfere with the production of wine or its conservation.
We highly recommend good hygiene in the cellar.
Pressure washers will help us in this task
15- Ozone in the cellar
Ozone, for different reasons, provides an optimal solution for deodorization and sterilization in warehouses.
Ozone has a great oxidizing power and therefore it is: Bactericide, Sterilizer, Virucidal, Microbicide and Deodorant.
Along with hygiene, ozone is the ideal complement to keep the winery environment clean and disinfected, being able to reach every corner.
We recommend the following ozone generators
