Wine Fermenting in GOfermentor

“It’s important for us to make quality wines sustainably,” said Dr. Vijay Singh, designer and co-owner of GOfermentor®. “That’s why our GOfermentor® system could revolutionize the way wine is fermented and produced with minimal waste.”

GOfermentor® is proud to announce its 2015 winery trial results of its new fermentor technology, reporting high ratings in several categories based on input and comparisons by winemakers from numerous wineries.

The GOfermentor®, a revolutionary new technology for winemaking, features a patented dual-chamber single-use plastic liner that requires no washing, saving water, time, and labor. The automated punch mechanism extracts more color and body from the grapes without any human effort needed. The wine can be gently pressed out using the integral press. This may eliminate the need to purchase and operate an external press.

“It’s important for us to make quality wines sustainably,” said Dr. Vijay Singh, designer and co-owner of GOfermentor®. “That’s why our GOfermentor® system could revolutionize the way wine is fermented and produced with minimal waste.”

Fourteen wineries, from smaller vineyards of Sans Soucy and Materra, to larger operations such as Clos Pegase, participated in the trials where the GOfermentor® system was installed and run by local winery staff. A collection of red varietals were studied - Tempranillo, Mencia, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Foch, Petite Syrah, Grenache noir, Pinot noir, and others. A few wineries even made white wine using Chardonnay. Their experiences with the GOfermentor® technology were overwhelmingly positive. Winemakers responded enthusiastically to the ease of installation – the GOfermentor® can be set up in just a few minutes – and the automated punchdown was one of the most popular features. The sanitary aspect of the single-use liner was popular with testers, particularly because it eliminates washing. The integral press was used by many wineries and gave good results.

The GOfermentor® also utilizes a closed system which helps protect against insects and contamination. The GOfermentor® prevents air from contacting the wine, minimizing the need for sulfite additions. Overall, the fermentation parameters in the GOfermentor® were similar to those observed in conventional fermentors. Tasting panels and winemakers rated the wines made in the GOfermentor® as good, if not better than those made using conventional technology, with comments such as fruitier, fresher, and softer mouthfeel. This was achieved at a fraction of the cost and labor required using traditional fermentors. The trial done at VITEC in Spain provided the most comprehensive data with three varietals run side-by-side with control fermentations.

“The 2015 trials have proven that the GOfermentor® can consistently make wine of better quality than traditional technology,” said Meera Singh, sommelier and co owner of GOfermentor®. “Wineries can dramatically reduce their labor requirements while also reducing water usage and environmental impact.”
