Field Built Tanks
The 150,000 gallon field built wine tank pictured above is a double wall insulated tank. Because it is 30' x 30' dimensionally, it is too large and too heavy to be trucked, so we built it onsite in seven weeks using a crew of four.
We normally build large tanks on a flat spot at the winery, standing up an a-frame structure and setting up a job box and construction trailer on a pad nearby. For the project requiring a crane, existing tanks were in the way, so the new tank was moved a very short distance over the top of other tanks. For high-volume blends and fermentation, tanks at 350,000 gallons or larger are cost-efficient. Call us for solutions to your tank planning.

Each tank is custom-built to your specifications. Jim Belli and Mark McDowell bring years of experience working with owners and vintners to their custom fabrication of tanks, catwalks and equipment. They can provide valuable input in planning tank sizes, tank farm layouts or tank and catwalk configurations.
