Taking orders for V 2020! made by hand, and cured for weeks, there is no rushing this artisanal method - order soon to receive prior to harvest 2020.
We currently have the 300 L and 500 L Classic Amphora in stock at our warehouse in Melbourne. They come with the stainless steel lid inserts:
300 litre beeswax amphora, classic shape.
500 litre beeswax amphora, classic shape
Amphorae are also available in sizes 80 - 1200 litres.
Handmade in Italy from clays specifically sourced from the town of Impruneta; this is made of a particular kind of clay, known for its special characteristics of strength and colour, present only in a restricted geographical area around the town, which is in the Chianti region. The clay is neutral in pH. The Amphora can be used au naturel, coated inside with beeswax, or coated with an epoxy. Available in classic Amphora shape, or egg shape.
The vessels have an integrated stainless steel lid for protecting the wines, and can be fitted with a tasting valve and/or a drain valve. They are the perfect way to ferment or mature whilst having similar oxygenation to a barrel but without the oak impact.
