This year Classic Oak Products is pleased to introduce the Trust Cooperage range of innovative and sophisticated oak barrels.
While you might be familiar with our Hungarian barrels offered as Demptos Cooperage, these barrels have always been coopered at Trust’s technically advanced cooperage by skilled craftsmen to the highest quality standards.
Quercus Petraea and Quercus Robur oak is carefully selected from sustainably managed Hungarian forests, then crafted by our master coopers at Trust’s specialised Hungarian cooperage. The resulting barrels bring a subtle integration of oak character into wines, with a trusted product to suit your winemaking aspirations.
Based on the proud heritage of the Hungarian forest and a historical link with the French wine industry, Trust’s innovative and modern cooperage incorporates its own stave mill and expansive area for naturally air drying oak used in our barrels. While renowned globally in the “traditional varieties” of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot, we are also widely recognised with success in alternative varieties, especially in Australia, Italy, Hungary and other Eastern European countries.
