Custom crush services provider Carneros Vintners will be offering customers use of a new flash detante system during the 2012 harvest. The system is being built in Italy by Della Toffola Group and is expected to arrive in July. It’ll be the first flash unit in the North Coast. Carneros Vintners opened in 2009 and is part of the Vintners Group, which operates Lodi Vintners near Woodbridge, CA. They’ve been running a slightly larger flash unit in Lodi since 2010. The new system is rated at 20 tons an hour and will have three holding tanks, allowing for processing three separate lots at a time. Normally these machines come with one tank. “We can potentially receive fruit from three clients, or assist one client with three different lots,” general manager Tyson Rippey said. Some north coast customers hauled fruit to Lodi in 2010 and 2011 while many were too small for the unit in Lodi, which has a truckload minimum. The new unit will require a minimum of 10-15 tons of fruit. “We turned away a lot of business because the lots were too small to really work in Lodi during the last couple of years,” Rippey said. Flash has long been used in Europe, South America and Australia. The U.S. is sometimes slow to adopt new winemaking technology. There are now three flash units in North America – One is at Monterey Wine Company and was made by the French company Pera. A small demonstration unit made its way over to  Carneros Vintners during the 2010 harvest.
