The Vintner Vault is proud to be representing The Garbellotto Company here in North America! Founded in 1775 the Garbellotto Company has been building and perfecting the art of Foeder and Cask building for over 240 years!
Garbellotto produces conical trunk Foeder from 1000 to 20,000 liters (264 to 5,280 gallon) and upon request up to 60,000 liter (15,840 gallon) for wine making, storing, refining, distilling, vinegar, or other uses.
Garbellotto gives a slight curving using direct fire to the vats, technically called "bombe" so the hoops are always perfectly watertight thus avoiding the long-term sagging of the stave. On request we can also toast the vats at controlled temperature and humidity levels. The narrowly spaced hooping with top quality galvanized phosporated iron complete the building on the vats.
All the Foeders go through two strict control procedures, the first with steam then with water to verify the exact capacity and perfect hold.
Internal and external planning sanding and the application of a special natural transparent, transpirable varnish on the wood and the red strip painted around the end of the upper stave give the finishing touches. Finally the relative accessories are installed depending on whether the vat is used for fermentation, storing, industrial usage, or both.
In recent years the demand for Foeders for fermentation has increased due to the same convenient stainless steel accessories found on stainless steel tanks that are used in both fermentation and storage.
During fermentation, the anti-oxidising effect of the tannin combined with the micro-oxygenation of the wood brings about a more limpid production of wine or grape must with a more stable aroma and color.

Experience® is the latest creation by Garbellotto, and the result of combining their experience and the observations from the expert wine maker Roberto Cipresso, during his research in the experimental Winecicus Cellars.
The name Experience® was used for dual meaning as a recollection of the past actions and also the exploration of new ideas. The aim pursed by the project is to offer the winery an instrument able to interpret the changes that occur in time in the vine, using adequate winemaking strategies, and therefore able to provide the market with an expert answer. For that to happen, it is essential that the careful observation and understanding of the properties of the raw materials goes hand in hand with agile and practical experimentation, without stealing time and space form the primary winemaking process.
With it's capacity of 1000 liters (264 gallons) so wine makers who traditionally use wooden barrels for fermenting can get used to it gradually, and at the same time , those who normally use barrels have a more practical instrument that guarantees the same oenological result.
The truncated cone shape, designed so that the height is no higher than 100 cm (40") and is less than the width, has an affect on the floating force contemplated by Archimedes's principle, blocking the thrust upwards of the cap. The cap remains immersed aided by the welded grid to a threaded bar at the center of the base, so that the majority of the fulling process is eliminated.
The top is made of mirror polished AISI 18/10 Stainless Steel, with handles to open it and a central hole for filling. During fermentation, this top can be completely removed to enable more practical processing with an opening of 120 cm (47"). Experience® also has steel supports so that it is pallet jackable, fork-liftable. These supports are firmly fixed to the wooden structure, so that a rotator can be used to empty the must directly into the press. The Experience® is also stackable.
