Tanks roll into Delicata

Delicata’s €1.2 million red wine tank farm development project moves in to its final phase this week as the stainless steel wine tanks are moved into position. This follows completion of the tiling which saw over 31,000 tiles laid within a four week stretch. The state-of-the-art stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks, made specifically for the vinification of quality red wines arrived at the winery almost a year ago and during that time they have been thoroughly tested and in some cases used to ferment Delicata’s 2008 D.O.K. red wines. The specialised red wine tanks have now been moved to their final resting place, ready to receive their first batch of 2009 grapes for fermentation which will start rolling in at the winery at the beginning of August. This year’s grapes will also take a new route as they are directed to a brand new grape receiving area, which includes a weigh-bridge, and is located right next to the new tanks. There is also a new press house, additional office space, specialised wine making rooms and a second laboratory, specifically for grape analysis and improved quality control measures. The new hall runs alongside some of the company’s existing fermentation tanks. The actual space taken up by the project will increase the size of the winery by 2100 square meters, approximately one third of the existing footprint.
