Combining the best of French traditional cooperage techniques with modern production facilities.
Specialising in the manufacture of premium 225 litre oak barrels for use in the wine industry, the oak is sourced from a very small region of less than 50 square miles in Southern Missouri. The staves are air dried there between 24 and 36 months in almost perfect conditions of wind, snow in winter, high rainfall, high humidity and good sunshine in summer. From this wood only the best staves with tight grain are selected to be coopered in the Napa. The result is an American oak wine barrel with fine complex structures complimenting the delicate vanilla and subtle oak notes making it suitable for use with many different grape varieties.
