Red Hunter
Continuous Thermovinification Plant | Padovan

The Red Hunter is a continuous vinification line for the production of red, rose and deep red wines with a superior alcohol content and a constant quality.  With energy savings of up to 35% when compared to traditional thermovinification systems, the Red Hunter can achieve more colour intensity in 1 hour than 10 days of cold vinification.  The spiral heat exchangers are gentle on the mash, producing approx 3-5% of lees.

Standard models are from 5 to 60 tonnes/hour.
