The Vin et Terre jars do not have any coating to ensure direct contact of the wine with the material, thus favouring a moderate and natural micro-oxygenation.
Each level is made with the help of a mould and then assembled by hand, which allows the structure to be reinforced while maintaining a certain regularity. However, the pieces remain unique and the size, colour and volume may vary slightly depending on the potter.
Stoneware produces straight, mineral, fresh, pure, delicate and light wines, respecting the grape variety, the quality of the fruit and the authenticity of the aromas.
Vin & Terre designs the shapes of the jars and Yunqiao, a ceramic engineer, produces them.
