The Elsom Cellars Wine Word of the Week – Concrete Tank

A “concrete tank” in winemaking refers to a large vessel made of concrete that is used for various stages of the winemaking process, particularly fermentation and sometimes aging. These tanks are specifically designed for use in the production of wine and offer unique characteristics that can influence the wine’s development.

Good times are meant to be shared and so are great grapes and great wines! Since 2006, Elsom Cellars has been producing brilliant Washington wines. For more information about Elsom Wines, please visit http://www.elsomcellars.com or call them at 425-298-3082.
