Advantages of Mixing Wine, and Mixing Spirits

Mixing can have a dramatic effect on the consistency, quality, and taste of wine and spirits as well as accelerating the production process. This can lead to significant cost savings.

Why Mix Wine?

Mixing wine or spirits with in agitator can offer several advantages. This is achieved by creating or accelerating below process changes during wine production.

  • Blending (alcohol level adjustment, fermentation, storage)
  • Homogenous Solid Levels (centrifuge feed after fermentation)
  • Heat Transfer (cold stabilisation)
  • Mass Transfer (flavour extraction, sugar extraction, additive mixing)

Mixing Wine With Agitators

Traditional blending methods such as pump over are not ideal mixing solutions as they consume high amount of energy, don’t thoroughly mix the tank content, and can damage the product structure by creating turbulent flow in the tank.

CPE’s world leading agitation solution (Vinfoil®) offers efficient and gentle mixing of wine and spirits, which can optimise the production process and maintain and even improve the product integrity.
