Padovan are industry leaders with their thermovinification technology, having produced the largest continuous unit in the world.
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.
