Inside Missouri Cooperage - Your Exclusive Seminar

We invite you to join us for a comprehensive oak journey, from forest to cooperage. This behind-the-scenes tour is an excellent way to deepen your understanding of oak science. After harvesting oak trees in an Ozark forest, we’ll explore our stave mill and cooperage to see how premium wine barrels and oak alternatives are crafted. Each part of the coopering process is dedicated to what matters most: achieving a wide range of flavor profiles that are consistent barrel to barrel, vintage to vintage. 

REGISTRATION CLOSED Thank you for your interest.  This workshop is full for this year.  Please visit us this time next year.   

What to Wear: Due to the hands-on nature of the tours, we recommend well-worn clothing and closed-toe shoes. Jeans are appropriate. Be prepared for fluctuating Missouri weather (average high is 67ºF and average low is 47ºF). Pop up, sporadic rain showers possible each day.
