The Year 2015 closes for Artenova with a strong presence of our company in France. The list of new French customers has grown especially in the latter months of the year, thanks to new companies from 13 different wine producing regions who have all chosen the terracotta wine-jars made in our workshop in Impruneta. Winemakers from Burgundy, Alsace and the Loire, were added to the customers of the Regions of Jurancon, Cotes du Rhone, Languedoc, Roussillon, Provence, Gard, Corse, Champagne, the Loire Valley, Bordeaux, Cahors and Marmandais.
In the heart of the largest wine region of Champagne, La Cote des Bar, the egg-shaped jars from the kilns of Artenova all the way from Impruneta, are used to make champagne. The producers of Champagne Gallimard, decided a few years ago to experiment the ancient winemaking technique using terracotta for the production of their champagne, with excellent results.
The Artenova wine-jar with the elegant airtight lid shown in the photos, comes from the cellar of the French producer Sebastien David from Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil, in the central Loire Valley.
New orders from Europe come from Austria (Simon Engel in Styria), Geneva (Damien Mermoud), Bulgaria (Nicolay Dalakov), Spain (Diego Measles in Valencia), Portugal ( F. Pato Vinhos) and also from Tunisia (Grombalia). Meanwhile in Italy, new business relationships have been growing for Artenova in Tuscany, Veneto, Lazio, Sardinia, Marche, Umbria, Campania and Liguria.
Artenova’s latest clients from overseas are the company Cline Cellars Vineyard and Winery from Sonoma in California.
