In the heart of Burgundy, the François Frères Cooperage, which has been a family business for over a century, is renowned for fabricating casks and barrels of the highest quality. They are used every year to help produce the world's most prestigious wines, not only in France, but in every other wine-growing region.
This continuity in manufacturing reference-quality barrels results from relationships built on trust, and from actively listening to each of our partners. This trust has been acquired through constant, unwavering attention to detail in everything we do: from choosing the best oak in the forests where our wood is sourced to the finishing stages, including the traceability of every cask.
The fabrication is meticulously carried out and we pay particular attention the way the oak is seasoned, which is done naturally, in the open air. Our site above the town of Saint-Romain has a climate which creates the best-possible ageing conditions for the staves.
By listening attentively to our clients, we have been able to create a range of products which meets the demands of a wide spectrum of vinification and maturation techniques. This variety makes François Frères barrels the best choice for bringing out and reinforcing the intrinsic qualities of great wines.
