TAVA company has been producing ceramics for three generations. In recent years, through the technical advice of oenologists and wine producers, TAVA has realized a range of amphoras for vinification and aging.

On the basis of the traditional production of amphoras in Italy, Spain and Georgia, the company has developed an amphora which, through new constructive solutions, ensures the ideal way in the oenological processes, in accordance with tradition.

The main thread of the entire project is to adapt the amphora to the several varieties of grapes and to the different wine-making practices. This must be achieved necessarily through a tight collaboration between cellars and the amphoras producer, that will be able this way to increasingly develop the best product.

Production

Production

Working ceramic has always been a difficult and challenging art. This material is extremely rewarding to work with but at the same time requires total effort and dedication from the craftsman.

Throughout history, ceramic workshops have always been a challenging environments for workers because of the oven's high temperature and dust arising from processing.

Our products, made with high quality standards by our craftsmen to meet the needs of our customers, require special handling and thoroughness. We thus had to create a suitable work environment to make our craftsmen operate in the most comfortable and ergonomic conditions at all stages of the production process.

Studying the appropriate conditions inside the work environment has required to monitor and control temperature and humidity. In addition to the standard air-conditioning systems the implementation of a green wall of plants fit for the microclimate in the production area is under way.

Vegetation

Vegetation

The introduction of vegetation in the production areas has affected the humidity and temperature levels with countless benefits for workers and products.
Holding the temperature and humidity as constant as possible allows the ceramic to dry in a slow and gradual way, reducing defects due to abrupt and non-uniform drying.

Besides these benefits, a thriving vegetation inside the work areas increases air oxygen percentages, improving its quality and consequently the work environment, reflecting on the high quality levels of products.


Handcrafted

In recent years the demand for amphoras has increased exponentially, leading to the proliferation of amphoras' producers and suppliers. As often happens to keep costs down, companies have begun to automatize the forming production processes and to lower the ceramic mixtures quality. We have always been strongly convinced that the manual artisanal way was the only one possible and irreplaceable to produce amphoras of outstanding high quality. This does not mean approaching in an outdate way, unreceptive to innovation and the best production solutions, but rather believing that the eye and the hand of the craftsman are still irreplaceable.
High specialization levels and attention to detail are mostly crucial in ceramic materials processing, because they require craftsmanship and thoroughness.
