Founded by Henri Baron in 1875, Tonnellerie Baron is situated near the town of Saintes in the Charente-Maritime department, on the original site of its founding, still maintaining the historic craft of coopering in its purest traditional methods. Located in the heart of the celebrated vineyards of Cognac, the artisanal workshop works in service to the most prestigious global vineyard properties.
Located in Castell’Alfero d‘Asti, the heart of Monferrato, the Gamba family has handed down the ancient art of the master cooper from father to son for seven generations. As early as the 1800’s, oval and round casks, along with barrels and vats were being built in the skillful craftsmen’s workshop for Italy and its neighboring countries.
European Coopers Ltd. was founded in 1997 by a Hungarian Master Cooper Mr. Kristóf Flódung, together with several famous Italian families of the wine and barrel industry: the Antinori, the Gamba and the Mazzei families. Flódung’s vast experience began in Hungary in a barrel factory and later in Germany at the Rieger Cooperage.
In 2001, engineer and vineyard owner Tony Flecknoe-Brown devised, developed and later patented the application of oxygen permeable polymers for use in the winemaking industry using ultra-clean, food-grade polyethylene to construct specially-designed, oxygen permeable maturation vessels. Moving from initial trials to rapid commercial adoption, Flexcube was born.
Thanks to OXOline® racks which allow barrels to be rotated and handled separately, Tonnellerie Baron has developed «Vinification intégrale®»complete vinification. This technique allows the harvested grapes to be properly placed in the barrels and all the classic vinification operations can be carried out without the expense of sending barrels out for modification, or bringing coopers in to perform specialized services.
As for high quality stainless steel containers Speidel is first choice because we never compromise when it comes to material and workmanship. If not long before, this is something that you will appreciate when it comes to the cleaning of the container.
Surfaces as smooth as glass, joint-less weld seams and complete filling and draining make sure that there are no “dead corners” inside the container which might compromise the content. This way, the fruits of your labour are always kept well!
Amphorae and stoneware have been used in winemaking from ancient times.
