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. We will witness the harvesting of oak trees in an Ozark forest, we’ll explore the 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. 

Register Now This exclusive, one-of-a-kind workshop has limited spaces and fills very quickly.  Please register NOW to assure your spot.

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.  The Tuesday evening dinner will give you the opportunity to shed the dust of the day and dress for an evening of culinary delights, superbly crafted wines and stimulating conversation.

$75.00 per person.
