  • Premium Oak Barrels from Tonnellerie

     

    Presque Isle Wine Cellars proudly introduces our new barrel line from Tonnellerie Ô.  With Tonnellerie Ô barrels, Old World tradition and generations of oak forestry, selection, and milling knowledge meet New World innovation.  

     

    Tonnellerie O Winemaking BarrelsTonnellerie Ô sources its oak from the finest French and American forests, working exclusively with pedigreed family-owned stave mills to select and season the oak and fashion it into rough stave blanks with complete traceabillty back to the source.  

     

    The seasoned stave blanks are shipped efficiently and at low cost to Tonnellerie Ô’s California cooperage facility where its master coopers hand shape the staves and hand create, hand toast, and hand finish these exquisite barrels aided by state of the art cooperage machinery and a state of the art technical laboratory to analyze and verify the quality of the oak at each step.  

     

     

    This innovative approach allows Tonnellerie Ô to produce premium artisanal quality barrels at a non-artisanal price. Take a virtual tour of Tonnellerie Ô and see Tonnellerie Ô at work in the video below.
