An interesting new winemaking trend – making wine in terracotta jars. Not really new – the Romans used this method to make their wine. Now artisans based in Impruneta in Tuscany are creating terracotta fermentation giare and barriques for wine making.
We expect that within two to three years, you will be able to try a wine made by this organic method. Terracotta-fermented wines have been made for many years by Josko Gravner, in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of northeastern Italy, and producers in Sicily have been marketing small quantities for several years.
Nowadays, buyers have no trouble finding a good wine so what they’re looking for is a wine that suits their taste or a wine that presents a new taste experience. Maybe this is the next big thing!
