Winery Equipment Testimonial

Ryan and I worked together at Justin Winery for five years and have known each other for ten. While at Justin, Ryan was passionately interested in the wine making process, could fix about anything and was totally dedicated to making the winery a success. He has taken that dedication to Vintner Vault and became a major player in the winery supply business in just a few years. Jeff Branco, former VP and Winemaker Justin Winery

 Garbellotto French Wine Barrels

These containers are easier to build than the casks as they have just one curving on the staves. Nevertheless particular attention is needed at both the manufacturing stage and in the choice of wood used. There are always two species of wood but they are taken from the trunk in two different ways: fine-grain split oak for the smaller barriques from 225 up to 350 lt. and 550 to 750 lt. for the larger ones. Both types of wood come from the best forests in Europe, France (Allier, Never, Vosges, etc.) Eastern European wood also available from Slovenia, Bosnia and the Balkans.

Stave curving is carried out with direct fire using pieces of seasoned oak to avoid aromatic interference followed by a slow delicate toasting in conditions of controlled humidity to ensure the maximum aromatic efflux from the wood. Toasting can be light, medium, medium strong and strong. The tops and bottoms of the barrels are usually toasted separately and then assembled.
The toasting of the tops and bottoms is very important to get a uniform aromatic discharge from the whole barrel.

Six narrowly spaced hoops made of top quality galvanized and phosphorated iron complete the construction of the barrels. Internal and external planing and sand-papering, which makes cleaning easier and makes the barrels look splendid, give the finishing touches.
