Winemaker Wins Competition Using Stainless Steel Barrels

In 2005, when Jay Cantor, an amateur wine maker and customer of Skolnik, entered his 2003 Dry Creek Valley Merlot at the 30th annual Marin County Fair for amateur winemaking competition, he never expected to win a 2nd place. Therefore, we were very excited to learn that this year, Jay entered his 2005 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel and won 3rd place, again, at the Marin County Fair competition. We know that our professional wine customers are making great strides in refining our stainless steel barrels for their wines, and it‘s terrific to see that even the amateurs are getting high rankings when using our stainless steel barrels. Whether talking about the larger well-known wineries that purchase hundreds of drums at a time, or small home wine makers who purchase one to two drums at a time, the positive feedback seems to be the same. Our stainless wine barrels are easy to obtain, easy to clean, affordable, and are the best choice for contemporary wine making. With the big harvest just ahead, orders this month are picking up significantly. Be sure to leave us ample time to fabricate and ship your orders.
