How the "THE BREATHING BOTTLE" was born

Terracotta Wines is a personal project that was born due to one of my trips to Italy. I was once in a cellar tasting different wines, and the most expensive one was a Riesling fermenting, in experimentation phase, in clay amphorae.

Is it possible to bottle wine in clay bottles?

Botella - TerraCotta Wines was excited with the idea of how would the wine mature in the amphorae, and I wondered whether it could also be possible to bottle the wine in bottles made with the same material.

Analyzing the matter, I realized that the biggest issue was to avoid the loss of liquid as the time would go by.

On a later trip to Italy, I went to speak to a childhood friend who works with clay and pottery. Together, we studied the process to provide the bottle with the required water tightness.

This feature on the bottle has been patented by me after many technical trials for several temperatures, materials and shapes.

It’s a handicraft product, made by a highly qualified human team, and exclusively for us, now done in Valencia.

This is how “the breathing bottle” is born, the invention that will be used to let the wine develop and age in the very same bottle, without waiting for the winery to do it.

“My name is Amos, I am a sommelier and my great passion for wine has led me to create the breathing bottle. To that end, I have studied how wine was preserved in antiquity and thus, I have solved the problem regarding the loss of liquid from the amphorae“

A gift that lasts in time

In today’s society, we live multiple occasions on which we would like to present a gift that would be appreciated by whoever receives it, being our wish that it will be useful, functional and will call up nice memories in the receiver.
Terracotta Wines has also thought about this and offers you the solution: the breathing bottle. Once the bottle has been used for its primary function, which is the transport of wine and the opportunity to satisfy the palate with a wine aged to its own taste whilst maintaining its original characteristics, it can be reused to keep cool any liquid.
In this way it becomes a valuable, delicate, elegant and, above all, handmade and exclusive gift.
