Current offerings:

    • 19 – 20 liter (~5 gallon) –  Not currently available
    • 8 – 45 liter (10-12 gallon) –  Not currently available
    • 144 – 159 liter (38-42 gallon) –  Not currently available
    • 220 – 227 liter (58 – 62 gallon) –  Not currently available

Please stay tuned for availability/lead time and to place an order.

While these prices may seem high on a $/volume basisQvevri product  compared to French oak (about twice the cost of a new barrel), please keep in mind that these specialty, artisanal containers have a potentially unlimited lifespan, are entirely handmade by  a master potter and artist, and require significant labor/time and have high costs to fire (roughly $100 for the smallest qvevri and exponentially more for the large qvevri). The total price paid goes to the potter to try to help make this ancient craft viable here in the US.

    I am growing nebbiolo grapes in california on one acre. I will harvest in about two years producing about 600 gallons.
    I want to produce the wine in Qvevri, however $48,000 is too high for me. Think you’ll come down in price? I’d like to get these in the ground so i can bulid a structure over them to keep them enclosed.
    Love what you doing!

      We are working on ways to lower costs including having our own mobile kiln and a team of potters to produce qvevri locally on site! We don’t have a date set yet and it is taking time to get it launched, but we are excited. Brent

    I am seeking to buy a qvevri to make a small bit of wine. I have about 90 ft of grape vines… harvested 6 gallons of small white grapes last year.
    I want to make some wine next season.. and decided I wanted to try this ancient method. Do you have any small Qvevri’s? I live in NM.

    I am looking to buy the smallest Qvevri you make… looks like 5 gallon. I have 2 vines.. which produced 35 lbs of grapes this year… I want to make wine next year.

    I live in NM.
