Sonoma Cast Stone unveils conical tank
At almost twice the size of Sonoma Cast Stone’s egg-shaped concrete fermentation tanks, the new 925-gallon conical concrete tank offers the same advantages but with more space. Sonoma Cast Stone reports that the tank’s conical design “compacts the cap and forces it into the wine.” A pomace door allows the tank to be used for white and red wines. Details: concretewinetanks.com.
