We buy oak in France from the same forest auction origins as do all participants in the French Barrel industry who are not sourcing in Eastern Europe. We transport fresh cut oak to the company owned facility in Nivolas Vermelle which lies between Lyon and Grenoble. Our French oak is sourced from the center of France (Allier, Never and Bourgogne regions) and from the Vosges region.
Our American oak is sourced from forests in Missouri, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Fresh cut material is stored in our company owned facility in Winchester Virginia.
Natural drying of our wood in the open air for minimum of three winters using the same seasoning principles as the cooperage
