The Cellar at Capaia

published on: Wednesday, 30 September 2020

The heart of Capaia is the winery where all red wines are fermented in oak fermenters, in the form of 56 French-oak fermentation tanks, each with a capacity of 5,200 L and 8,400 L respectively, making it the largest wood-based fermentation plant for private cellars in the world! They come equipped with temperature regulation, manufactured by Tonnellerie Taransaud in Cognac. With the unloading station located at the winery’s highest point, all juices are entirely gravity-fed, a technique that has proven to facilitate outstanding wines.

The use of the French oak fermenters contributes significantly to the quality of the wine. The difference between using wood and steel in fermentation is noticeable. With wood there is oxygen exchange during the fermentation process and the wood flavour is immediately brought to the juice from an early stage.
