VARIABLE CAPACITY FERMENTERS

VARIABLE CAPACITY FERMENTERS VS. OPEN-TOP FERMENTATION

Make no mistake about it, the 21-century winemakers are artists, this ancient craft has embraced it’s old school techniques via the internet. High-level learners are very capable of working with formally trained old school Vintners in amazing collaborations in the ancient art of wine making.

Why VCT or Close Top fermentation Vessels?

As you might imagine you’re at a higher risk of picking up too much oxygen or spoilage micro-organisms when your wine is not protected by a lid and airlock. Hence the versatility of a Variable Capacity Fermentor.

Vintners have 1 chance to make it right, do to the crop gestation period this is why more & more wineries are working with Variable Capacity Fermenters or closeTop fermentors.Mitigating the risk of spoilage when not protected by a lid and airlock. VCT can have a slight slope or conical shape meeting the demands of the individual Vintners requests. At Prettech Canada we can design modify and perfect the vintners, requests.

Behind every glass of wine comes flawless engineering
