Vinicola Sipario is located in the enologic establishment in Cerignola and spreads across a total of 15.000 sq. m., with a total of 150.000 hectoliters of product storage capacity. Tanks in AISI 316 stainless steel have been installed around the central building, most of which are equipped with jacketed heat exchangers to cool or heat products in summer and winter - the installed refrigerators can develop 800.000 frigories.
The following equipment is available: Machines for filling tanks with an inert gas (nitrogen), in order to avoid the oxidation of products in contact with atmospheric oxygen. Mertical vinification tanks of various sizes, to optimize the extraction and vinification phases; the process parameters can be modified upon clients’ request. Different types of cross-flow filters with spiral membranes or hollow fibres of various size, and one isobaric cross-flow microfiltration system that is used to reach the highest degree of limpidity in sparkling wines. These systems have replaced the former diatomaceous earth filtration systems with positive results such as a remarkable reduction in residual solids, a better protection of the environment and increasingly clear products. Different types of low temperature desulfurization plants for the protection of our products’ characteristics. They can be used together with a multi-concentration plant that helps us have a flash concentration, an important process that protects wines from deterioration and avoids the development of "cooked" flavors. After the sedimentation of tartrates, these final products are ready to be filtered.
