Egg vessels for those wineries seeking to add an extra layer of complexity or a different style.
High-Tech-Version Concrete Egg:
the shape of the egg is in perfect geometrical harmony. It is ideal for storing wine because it does not have to contend with any edges or obstacles when it circulates around the vessel. The air passing through the egg’s concrete walls enables the desired polymers to form during the wine’s maturation process. Heavy wine molecules gliding down the inner sides of the oversized egg push the lighter wine molecules in the middle of the egg back up, resulting in a type of circulation. The wine can move around freely and completely unencumbered.
