Inside Missouri Cooperage Seminar

Barrel making is a centuries-old craft steeped in tradition. Yet it was the fine-tuning of the process that made it like an “art.” Today, Cooperages 1912 continues to perfect the craft of barrel making through innovation, technology and ingenuity.

VESTA invites 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 a 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.
