Our Fine Products


Each of our 7 partners represents the finest in wine barrel quality and performance. Each has a unique history and story to tell. For more information on each partner's products and statistics please select from the list below.

Bel Air Bel Air is a relatively young cooperage located in Bordeaux with an annual production of 10,000 barrels. It was created by a like-minded group of Bordelaise winery owners to produce an ultra premium barrel in which the focus is on the wood selection. They offer barrels based on the flavour and tannin profile of the wood, rather than the tightness of grain.
Billon Tonnellerie Billon is located in Burgundy. Manager Vincent Damy oversees one stave mill, the cooperage and 22 workers. In 2007 Billon crafted over 12,000 barrels, very near their total capacity of production.
Damy Tonnellerie Damy is a third generation cooperage in Meursault managed by Jerome Damy. Hand-crafting over 20,000 barrels last year, Damy is expected to reach the limits of its production capacity in 2008.
European Coopers European Coopers was established in 1997 and was co-founded by the respected Italian wine producer Antinori. They are one of three principal cooperages in Hungary, and the only one that has remained independent. European Coopers controls the entire process of production, from sourcing logs and seasoning staves in their own stave yard, to fabrication and finishing of the barrel.
Master Coopers™ After 35 years of passion and dedication to the cooperage business, Vincent Bouchard is finally putting his signature on a barrel. Bouchard Cooperages is very proud to announce the introduction of Master Coopers™, a new global brand that draws on decades of experience in research and development from one of the leading experts in the world on barrel fabrication and application.
Richelieu Bouchard Cooperages is proud to announce the introduction of Richelieu, a new brand of barrel developed specifically for bolder red varietals and blends.
Canadell Canadell is a 4th-generation company with facilities in Trie-Sur-Baïse and Ully-Saint-Georges that has been supplying high-quality staves to the largest cooperages in the world for over 60 years. They are the oldest and remain the premier customer of the L'Office National des Forêts (ONF). Using only 100% French oak duramen (no bark or sapwood) from the finest high timber forests, Canadell applies strict proprietary toasting regimens to craft a complete line of oak alternatives – from oak powder to oak chips, dominoes and tank staves/fans.

One year warranty on all oak barrels.
