De-gassing Machines

One of the problems in Calgary and areas at high altitude is the difficulty in removing the C02 gas from the wine after fermentation ceases.

We dissuade our customers from beating the gas out of the wine with attachments connected to a drill, as after a number of days with this abuse to the wine, it can make the wine taste “tired” including the loss of  fruit forwardness.  Most of our customers use a Vacuvin to remove the C02 without oxygenating the wine.

The rental of our Home Vintner degassers is a speedier process to remove the C02 gas.   These are exclusive to The Home Vintner and rental is for our customers ONLY.
