Classic Concrete Egg Tanks
The egg shape harkens back to the ancient vessels used to ferment wine originally. With no corners, the wine is free to circulate naturally during fermentation, and you can actually watch the wine move during this process of constant stirring. The shape also forces more of the cap to remain submerged, gleaning the utmost in fruit flavor and color for your wine and reducing your need for "punch down".
With a capacity of nearly 500 gallons, these egg-shaped wine tanks have been designed with features, options and accessories to accommodate your winery and your wine. Everything you'd expect, plus the pallets, pedestals and easy-clean pomace doors that show we've really done our homework. The sleek and simplistic design that shows so well in your showroom belies the comprehensive attention to detail within. For both white and red wines, hand-finished in your choice of color and featuring your winery logo, these tanks are certain to WOW winery tours. As with all Sonoma Cast Stone products, our egg tank is superior in both design and quality of concrete... and they're hatched right in the California Wine Country!
