Innerstave has an Oak Complement Solution for every winemaker.
Just as Innerstave’s proximity to the San Francisco Bay’s microflora makes our premium new French Oak Barrel flavor profiles distinctive and unique, so does our sourcing of oak trees. We have been working with the same trusted oak providers for more than 40 years, giving our products unparalleled consistency in origin.
Our oak products are convection oven toasted, rather than hand-fired. This gives us better control and consistency of our products for winemakers.
Our decades-old process allows winemakers to be more precise with the impact of oak and range of scalability versus what is possible with a traditional oak barrel program.
Jason Dodge, Managing Director, Winemaking, gives us a little background about Oak Complements and what to look for when when choosing a supplier.
