WINERIES & VINEYARDS
National Storage Tank began in the Napa Valley, Our roots are in wine, and they are deep, we served the needs of the Wine Industry in Napa & Sonoma Counties for years before we began to branch out into other industries. Behind all the prestige and panache involved in the Wine Industry, there are two things we always keep in mind; Agriculture and Manufacturing. We never forget neither the farmers nor the vintners, and from field to press and have been facilitating both for a long time.
Water Storage Tanks – Irrigation is essential, water on demand for crops, and frost prevention. Our tanks come in a wide variety of gallon capacities from 5,000 to 5 million and can be fitted with outlets of any size for maximum water draw, anti-vortex systems are second nature to us as well. Your crop needs a consistent and reliable water source because grapes grow and the weather changes often so vineyards have to be ready at a moment’s notice. Our Corrugated Bolted Steel Tanks have been widely accepted across the Napa Valley as being complementary to both the landscape and the visual identity of both the most luxurious and rustic of wineries.
Wastewater & Chemical Tanks require special handling for specific reasons. Until laws change, wastewater generated from the making of wine needs to be siphoned off, and either pumped into a leech field or pond or trucked off-premises. Chemicals such as solvents for cleaning, liquid fertilizers, & pesticides for crops require extremely safe containment to prevent spillage or accidental exposure. We are able to provide chemical storage tanks for the smallest to the largest producing vineyard. In terms of chemical containment, we have our PolyCarbon Tanks that are welded carbon steel tanks with a heat fused interior layer of industrial polyethylene. This dual containment wall is superior to other tank options in terms of longevity and cost. We also have a wide range of welded and bolted tanks that have epoxy-coated interiors, as well as Potable Water Tanks for underground storage.
Wildfire Protection Tanks – No one needs to tell any vineyard manager or winery owner that we have had drought conditions for the past several years, these dry conditions and California winds make the potential for wildfires and real and growing concern. Protecting your vineyards and wineries are paramount. On-demand and easily accessible water dedicated to fire protection is an essential part of any vineyard management plan. What is needed is a small footprint-high volume storage alternative, such as a water tank. National Wildfire Coordinating Group has some good information on wildfires
Wine Fermenter Tanks – The fermentation process in any winery is critical to their successful operations. Whether you’re looking for a flat bottom, jacketed, or conical bottom fermentation tank we have just the right solution with our stainless steel tanks which are a perfect solution for the storing, mixing or fermenting needs of a winery or vineyard in sizes up to 650,000 gallons.
About Esthetics – So much of winemaking is concerned with developing a taste, a brand, a look. Winery Design has become an architectural wonderland, and many tasting rooms rival some of the finest restaurants. At National Storage Tank we can provide you with a tank that will be of a complimentary nature to your structures and landscape. We can bring a tank forward and make it a focal point, or have it recede into the surrounding structure or landscape. It all depends on your needs.
