The natural cradle of your wine

Natural stoneware jars for ageing and winemaking

Capacities from 200 to 1200L

ACCUEIL
Out of love for wine and for you, the winegrowers,
Vin et Terre has been developing a range of natural stoneware jars (silica from the Sichuan valley) for the past 10 years.
 
These jars have a
long history of containing wine, oils and other foodstuffs.
 
By keeping their clay structure and equipping them with accessories, we have made them evolve towards ovoid, spherical or elliptical shapes to allow your wines to express themselves fully.

The human touch

Like wine making, it is human touch that shapes each of our jars. A true artisanal know-how in the greatest respect of traditions. Just as each wine is unique, each jar is unique.

Stoneware

For delicate and fresh wines

With a lower porosity than terracotta, stoneware is particularly suitable for delicate white and red wines, crystalline wines with a fine aroma.

Conceived and designed by Vin et Terre, our range of containers benefits from the ancestral and unique Chinese craft industry. 
 

Uprightness, minerality

Shine & vibration

Slight micro-oxygenation

Our quality

Natural clay

Vin et Terre has chosen a ceramic based on natural clay extracted directly from a quarry.

Know-how

Our clay has a thousand-year-old history and is worked by hand by potters with ancestral know-how in food containers.

Traceability

Our jars have a batch number which ensures the traceability from the clay extracted from the quarry to the amphora in your cellar.

Our jars meet the European directives for ceramics intended for food contact

Amphorae

We often speak of "Amphorae" when we talk about maturing or vinification in terracotta containers, but in reality these are not the containers in which the wine is made.

 

An amphora is only a small step in the long history of the jar and yet it is the word you have chosen to define these containers.

Earth, a choice by nature

The porosity of the jar offers the must and wine regular oxygenation, like the oak barrel, but unlike the latter, it does not give it any taste or smell. It rounds out the tannins.
