Demetra amphorae are born from the desire to create wine vases that retain the romanticism of form of these containers and which combined the innovation that over the years has taken place in the ceramic sector.
The passion for wine and the in-depth knowledge of the processing of ceramic material it has pushed us to enter a completely new sector for us.
There was no lack of collaboration with ceramic technicians and oenologists and after several testswe managed to find the dough that suited our idea of an amphora.
Demetra amphorae is obtained by mixing clay and chamotte (cooked and crushed ceramic).
The addition of chamotte confers greater structure and resistance to the amphora.
The color of our amphorae is white because it is free of iron oxide.
The cooking temperature takes place at 1050 ° C, there is a micro porosity slightly lower than wood.
impervious to liquids with no need to apply enamels or waxes
