For pure and unadulterated expression
In a Wineglobe, wine tells everything about its ‘terroir’, varietal characteristics and the work involved. The absolute neutralness of our glass-made vessel enables full expression of your grapes, without any incidence or mask. When your grapes get to express their true essence that way, your wine conveys real feeling.
Based on feedback, the definitions of the truths that grapes express in Wineglobes are :
• varietal purity; precision: aroma and flavor finesse.
• crystal-clarity, luster and brightness.
• roundness and fullness on the palate.
Users were astounded to find that wines evolve in the Wineglobe: they appreciated the liveliness and energy. Winemakers felt they had discovered a new aging tool.
The globe was designed to make the tank completely oxygen-proof.
It’s very surprising to note that the wine evolves without any oxidation or reduction in the Wineglobe. In the absence of these phenomena, the wine isn’t still; it’s lively and dynamic and evolves slowly without any decrease of its aromatic and flavor potential.
The results we have had over the past 5 years demonstrate an evolution compared to classic winemaking: there are other phenomena than oxygen to avoid reduction.
Depending on the desired result, you can however add a small amount of oxygen (racking, stirring of the lees, micro-ox…).
No transfer of polluting agents into the wine
Thanks to its pure composite material, its complete lack of porosity and its tight atomic matrix, the glass globe withstands aggressive chemicals on the long run. Even after having been washed numerous times, our vessel doesn’t release any polluting agents into your wine. Purity is one of our main preoccupations and core to our approach of offering a vessel that cannot contaminate wine.
Easy to clean
Because the glass vat is smooth, it’s super easy to clean and descale. Only a few liters of water are needed to clean it thoroughly. Thus, on average, the amount of water used is half less compared to the barrel. The complete lack of porosity considerably decreases any chance of residual cleaning agents. The transparency of our aging vessel allows perfect visual monitoring.
Thanks to its extremely smooth surface, the Wineglobe prevents development of microorganisms so you can forget about related aromatic and flavor deviations.
Decrease in use of SO2
Compared to barrel aging, users have noted an average 25% to 50% decrease of total SO2 use.
Currently, you can find wines for sale that were solely aged in Wineglobes, and combinations of wines aged in Wineglobes with wines that were aged in other vessels.
When blended with a wine aged in a wooden vessel, the wine aged in a Wineglobe has a very positive impact on complexity thanks to the purity of its aromas and flavors, its radiance and its freshness.
Since our glass vessel displays nil porosity, there is no wine loss and no topping up needed.
Eternal and lasting
Made of unalterable glass, our Wineglobe vessel is intended to last several decades.
Thus, it ensures the closest bond between the grapes and the person tasting your wine to create pure and real feeling, without makeup.
You can actually see the wine evolving in our transparent vessel instead of looking down from the top. Tasks such as filling, racking or oenological observations (lees sedimentation, wine turbidity, onset of MLF, etc) are a lot easier to perform. You can follow the evolution of your wine during aging, work precisely and even interact with it.
The Wineglobe can be stored empty over a long period. That allows for easy vessel management without worrying about bacteria developing when empty.
Aging & Maturing
It the only container suitable for every winemaking step: vinification, aging and long-term aging. The Wineglobe enables you to exceed the contents of a bottle of wine to enjoy pure, homogenous and harmonious aging, without worrying about cork-related issues up until the launch.
