Open Top Fermenters

La Garde cubic and rectangular shaped tanks are designed to maximize the fermentation process. The square surface as opposed to round one with the same width, offers at least 30% more contact surface area between the cap of must and the juice.

More specifically, these open top fermenters provide a larger contact surface area resulting in a thinner cap of must. Therefore, it is much easier to punch down. All this helps the winemakers to be as gentle as possible with the more fragile grapes, those needing extra care, such as Pinot Noir. 

Features

Hybrid fermenters

La Garde cubic and rectangular shaped tanks are designed to maximize the fermentation process. The square surface as opposed to round one in tanks of the same width, offers at least 30% more contact surface area between the cap of must and the juice.

A larger contact surface area results in a thinner cap of must. Therefore, it is much easier to punch down, to provide more efficient pumpovers and to facilitate the cooling during the early stages of fermentation. All this helps the winemakers to save time and to reduce intervention procedures.

  • Also used for bottling, storing and racking wine into barrels
