François Frères Barrels
  • Founded in 1910, François Frères is the one of the most highly regarded cooperages of Burgundy located just outside of Beaune in the village of Saint-Romain, France.
  • With 3 stave mills in the holdings of the company, François Frères sources and mills all its own raw oak from certified sustainable government managed forests in France and forests in Eastern Europe.
  • François Frères have selected their raw oak with the same standard of quality over 20 years.
  • The staves are seasoned at the cooperage in the heart of Burgundy for 2-4 years before they are milled and shaped to build the barrels using very traditional methods with natural oak fires to bend and toast the barrels by hand.
  • All wood grain selections are also available in a range of toasting levels from light to medium-plus and are generally recommended for the famous varietals of Burgundy (pinot noir, chardonnay) as well as non-burgundian varietals (syrah, cabernet, merlot, sauvignon)
