VINEA French oak staves were one of the first naturally air-dried, fire-toasted staves to be available to the wine industry worldwide. The company’s 18 year history with oenological wood products is valuable to winemakers who seek top quality oak expression. VINEA adheres to the three basic fundamentals for French oak:

1. Origin – all oak wood is fine-grain sourced from traditional terroirs in central France including Loches, Jupille, Chateauroux, Bercé, etc.

2. Drying – natural seasoning of the oak is guaranteed for a minimum of 36 months at the VINEA 1.5 hectare wood park at Poitiers.

3. Toasting – by fire using traditional braziers fueled by French oak wood. Each side of the stave is toasted for 25 minutes (total of 50 minutes). Ceramic toasting is also available by VINEA’S ViniCeram process. Toasting using ceramic technology ensures uniformity and full penetration of the oak.
