As for wine and vineyard, climate, nature of the ground and hand of man gives personality to the wood and thus the renderings obtained in vinification or breeding.
The "Sessile" oak : the most noble wood essence for barrels.
We have been working for about 20 years in Bulgaria, a small Balkan country member of the European Union. The very contrasting climate, hot and dry in the summer and very cold during winter, is very favorable for the cooperage woods, indeed trees grows slowly wich results in a high density Sessile oak.
Crafting the finest Sessile oak barrel starts with the highest quality Oak staves which are sustainably sourced and air dried up to two years minimum by our coopers. The result : a very well adapted long tem wine breeding oak barrel known for it added fat, a great respect of the fruit and an exellent shelf life expectancy.
Acacia casks : as beneficial to rosés as they are to whites.
We are proud to have worked for the rediscovery of acacia as a cooperage wood. Vinification or aging in acacia barrels reveals more freshness and fruit aroma on the nose and palate, respecting the identity of all dry whites wines, late harvest or rosés thanks to the essence's delicacy!
