SEBASTOPOL – Winesecrets and Della Toffola USA, a subsidiary of Italy-based Della Toffola Group, announced the implementation of a demonstration scale version of the Thermoflash "Flash Detent" thermovinification system.

"Thermoflash appears to be an exciting tool for improving wine quality," said Eric Dahlberg, founder and president of Winesecrets.

"Thermoflash has key advantages over standard maceration," said Maria Angela Guarienti, CEO of Della Toffola USA. "Thermoflash reduces skin contact time, improving efficiency during harvest."

Thermoflash is a stand-alone system available from Della Toffola. Production-scale Thermoflash installations range from 5 tons to 60 tons per hour.
