Winery Equipment Testimonial:

"Upgrading your winery from 1000 cases per year to 3000 to 5000 can be a daunting task. The choices in winery equipment, capacity and price vary all over the place.  The great thing about Ryan is, having been a wine maker for years, he knows how to design things from start to finish. When I harvested my first ten tons of the year at 6:30 a.m., Ryan and his staff were there making sure everything was working correctly. I knew I had made a good decision."

3-Piece Air Lock

Airlocks (or fermentation traps) are U-shaped devices that act as a simple valve allowing carbon dioxide to escape from wine as it ferments while simultaneously keeping oxygen and air-born bacteria from reaching the wine. Typically, sodium metabisulfite solution (instead of water) or alcohol is placed in the airlock "U". This allows gas to escape from the wine. Fruit flies can carry harmful bacteria that may contaminate the wine. When a fly falls into an airlock full of metabisulfite solution, the "meta" will sterilize the bacteria and assuring that the wine will not turn into vinegar.
