Capsul: Artisanal Disgorgement Reinvented
Smaller wineries producing traditional method sparkling wine cannot afford to automate the disgorging process. Manual disgorging is labour intensive, inefficient and expensive while posing health, safety and environmental risks.
Capsul is designed to improve the disgorgement process while maintaining high quality sparkling wine with artisanal value. The product facilitates the removal of yeast without the loss of wine or pressure. This reusable cap is an intuitive, simple design centred on three tactile positions after initial ‘click’ that guides the process with minimal experience and training required.
Capsul facilitates the capture and removal of yeast following a second fermentation to present a clear sparkling wine. The benefits are reduced labour costs, reduced wine losses and improved health, safety and environmental outcomes.
