Premier cooperage combining traditional craftsmanship and modern research. 

Our aim is to ensure that barrels become a modern winemaking instrument by combining age-old craftsmanship and state of the art techniques developed by our Research and Development Department. This and our dedication to providing advanced wine-aging services have gradually persuaded us to use a broader range of oak sourced from different areas and set up businesses closer to our suppliers and customers throughout the world.

Essencia - 22mm Thin Stave traditional technique

Wood identified to be high in carotenoids as per those found in grape berries. Demptos uses this wood to produce the Essencia barrel to enhance the fruit characters of the wines rather than impart oak aromas. Providing complex aromatics with fine tannins, this barrel elevates the fruit in the mouth and delivers very good length.
