The Allary oak alternatives are produced exclusively from stave quality French oak containing no bark or sapwood. All of our batches of oak have been carefully selected for their oenological qualities and are subject to strict traceability requirements.
Our specialized facilities are situated on our premises and allow us to guarantee the reproduction of aromas and tannins as well as the optimum quality of our products.
The toasting process involves an air convection system which enables us to produce homogeneous levels of toast throughout the product with varying gradients of toast.
