  • Sympa-PI French Oak Winemaking Barrels

    We have discontinued this line of barrels for the time being, but we do still offer separate lines of quality wine making barrels and barrel alternatives. See available wine making barrels here.

    Presque Isle Wine Cellars is pleased to be the Eastern U.S., Ontario, and Texas representative for the superior quality Sympa-PI French Oak Wine Barrels.

    What is the Mercier Advantage?


    Family Affair:  Like Presque Isle Wine Cellars, Mercier is a family run business with personal involvement and firm commitment to quality and craftsmanship


    Excellent Price to Quality Ratio: Artisanal quality without the artisanal price


    Harmony and Synergy: Mercier wine barrels work in harmony with the local and natural characteristics of your grapes or fruit


    Customization: Diverse product options allow you to "customize" your wine barrel characteristics (forest selection, grain selection, toast style and toasting level) within a cost effective production volume framework


    Toast is Critical: The ability to select from four Toast Levels to best match the fruit or grape varietal you are working with is an invaluable tool that can enhance wine quality and character, especially with Eastern Grapes.


    Our Experience: Presque Isle Wine Cellars has used Mercier French Oak Wine barrels in our own award-winning wine production. Any time we have worked with Mercier wine barrels and performed side by side trials with other barrels, we find the Mercier barrels have never overpowered our wines with wood as have some others. While imparting the nuances and rich character that is expected from barrel aging, these barrels also preserved our terroir and varietal characteristics and enhanced the overall quality of the wine.
