While all the national forests of France are well-managed, some have now leveled-up to be “exceptional”. What does that mean? Well, in 2008, L’Office National des Forêts began the Forêt d’Exception® – or exceptional forests – label and to date, it has given this designation to 15 forests.
Since we can’t bring you to the forest/stave mill/cooperage right now, we wanted to bring them to you!
World Cooperage is excited to welcome Glenn Jeffries to the team as our new Barrel Consultant. Glenn will be in charge of crafting partnerships in Sonoma County, Oregon and Canada.
We’re just over a week removed from the 2019 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium. The kegs were drank, the potato chips were chomped and the booth was broken down and stored for next year.
Happy Holidays from our team at World Cooperage!
A Classic Choice, the World Cooperage Traditional Series Today’s spotlight focuses on the Traditional Series. If you’re a winemaker looking for amazing consistency and reliability, this is your barrel.
Six American oak barrels were toasted using hickory, mesquite, French oak and American oak then filled with Chardonnay. Pinot Noir was also used. A sensory panel assessed the wine to determine if the species of wood used to toast a barrel can significantly impact wine flavor.
