Cream of tartar – the natural sediment that forms during wine ageing - arises through the storage of wine over decades on the inside of the barrel.

This is an indication of quality and shows that no chemical agent was used in the preservation of the wine. At DIOGENES cream of tartar is used as a decorative element, e.g. for picture frames. It also serves as a certificate of originality: a piece of the cream of tartar becomes part of the warrant you find on every item of DIOGENES NEW LINE. This certificate shows also the barrel´s origin, size and year of construction, which was used for the construction of the furniture. So the customer can conceive the long history of the wood used in the production of this unique piece of furniture.
