Have you seen or experienced the explosive opening of a juicy pèt-nát? Our team at Sekhina loves pét-nat and we don’t want to let a single drop go to waste. This is why we created the pét-nat opener!
There are many pet-nat types but there is a type that is wild and explosive and very delicious. We have seen this type disappear from wine lists due to the problem of the complicated serving thus we wanted to find a solution. This was how the new Sekhina pet-nat opener was born. This kind of pét-nat that we love – and produce under the Sekhina name in cooperation with a winery – has a fruity taste and a special texture due to the lees, resulting in a perfect balance in the wine. As we couldn’t find an already existing, official category for these pét-nats, we started calling it: JUICY.
Everyone can enjoy the no juice-wasting opening process.
We call this social event the "pét-nat ceremony".
... and it is spectacular.
With this innovation, we wish to promote the pét-nat culture and the love for low-intervention wines.
This sounds radical, but it is very close to the principle of low-intervention winemaking. The disgorging process breaks this method radically, giving stress to the wine. Based on our experience, undisgorged juicy pét-nat has a higher vibration, more layers, and depth, as well as a beautiful rich color and unique texture. That's why juicy pét-nats are so funky, and rebellious!
The Sekhina pét-nat opener is a multi-functional tool. It enables us to open high-pressure drinks (not just pét-nats, but also ciders and kombucha for example) safely and without waste, while also keeping the drink cool. The cooler-container made of HPC concrete catches all the runaway drops, if any. The built-in water-resistant LED light illuminates the bubbles and the dancing lees, providing a super groovy background to our pét-nat ceremony.
Once you place your pét-nat into the concrete wine cooler, you pierce the crown cap with the head of the pin. The tip of the screw should barely pierce through the cap, around halfway of the cone head, (you will also hear the escaping noise) and when twisting it back carefully, the CO2 will slip out. By twisting the screw as needed, you’re in total control of the pressure, as the cone closes the hole.
This process allows for the gentle mixing of the lees so one can taste every layer. At the bottom, you’ll get the haziest juicy layer, and the flavor will reflect the terroir of the grape. Meanwhile, the heaviest particles still remain in the bottle. Our opener is a kind of "gourmet" tool with a heavy accent on the overall experience for all the senses.
We have created the pét-nat opener in six different colours – basalt, concrete, clay, pistachio, rosé and limestone – so it matches perfectly with all kinds of ambients from cosy to industrial and all kinds of wines, from red to white.
Are you thinking of buying more than one opener for your bar or restaurant, but worrying where they can fit? The concrete bottle coolers fit closely next to each other, no matter if upside-down, so they don't take up much space on the shelf or in the fridge. Do you want to buy more items for your company?
