How do you breathe new life into your used or multi-vintage barrels?

BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO YOUR USED BARRELS!

Although many cellar masters prefer ‘finished’ wines, sometimes all this requires is to extend the use of barrels in wineries

THE SOLUTION: OENOSTICK TO BOOST YOUR USED BARRELS

With a cylindrical shape specially designed to optimise perpendicular contact with the wood grain (as is also the case in a barrel), the dimensions of the OENOSTICK have also been selected to reduce the speed of wine/wood exchange: this makes it comparable to the processes occurring in a barrel, enabling slow diffusion of oxygen from the wood into the wine.

FOR WHICH WINES OR SPIRITS?

For red or white wines, concentrated or dry reds, sweet whites or even spirits (rum, brandies etc.), we offer OENOSTICKS tailored to every need: available in five versions, our range can be used during maturation or from alcoholic fermentation, depending on your objectives. The recommended period of contact is six to eight months.

HOW TO USE

It is vital to check the active SO2 cover on the wines every two weeks during the maturation process. Before topping up or taking samples, we recommend gently stirring the wine to facilitate extraction of the oak components and an even distribution of the oxygen provided by the OENOSTICK®.
If placing in a barrel that is already full, first remove the volume of wine matching the relevant OENOSTICK® model.
