    NAPA — Napa-based Heritage Barrels, LLC, is representing Paso Robles-based Vino Vessel, Inc.’s complete line of concrete tanks in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, except for San Luis Obispo County.

    Heritage Barrels“The value of concrete as a fermentation and storage vessel has been evident for centuries,” said John Schilter, managing partner of Heritage Barrels. “The concrete tanks from Vino Vessel allow us to offer another superior tool to our wine producing clients that complements the wood and stainless steel products they already use.”

    Heritage Barrels sells high-end oak barrels and vats and said it has seen demand for concrete vessels grow throughout North America.

    “We’re already working with some of the top winemakers in the Central Coast, and our partnership with Heritage Barrels allows us to showcase our concrete vessels to an expanded network of winemaking clients throughout North America,” said Micah Utter, president and chief executive officer of Vino Vessel.

    Since 2007 Vino Vessel has been making concrete fermentation and storage tanks for red and white wines, ranging in size from 70 to 1,300 gallons. They have been used in production of many top-rated wines, including Booker, Chronic Cellars, Linne Calodo, Peachy Canyon and Stolpman Vineyards.
