Our woods

100% Natural Maturation

Most of our oak is procured as squared-edged wood, coming from French and bordering forests. This raw material is selected with care by our buyers, ensuring unbeatable quality and durability.

For capacities exceeding 110 hectoliters, we also procure boules (reconstituted logs). This allow us to work with much bigger lengths of wood.

To strengthen traceability, each palette is stored and identified with a barcode containing all the information relevant to that batch of wood.
