The Smartest Oak Alternative.
In 2005, we introduced to the wine industry a smarter oak alternative for efficiency, economy and elegance--a product that fully extracts in weeks, not months, adds new oak impact at low cost, and integrates with a refined quality that rivals an oak barrel.
We engineered a low-cost method of forming a precision spiral cut into premium oak, maximizing grain exposure in a size small enough to fit through a bung hole. We then used a convection oven for controlled temperature exposure and timed for uniformity of depth of toast. We contain and connect six Oak Spirals inside a food-grade nylon mesh that makes insertion and removal easy. Finally, the Oak Spiral's fast submersion in wine gets extraction started immediately, complete in just six weeks and triggering the onset of the integration process.
The Oak Infusion Spiral is made in through-bung hole size and tank size and is available in French and American oak. Trials are currently being conducted with Eastern European oak. The Oak Infusion Spiral is designed, patented and manufactured in the USA.
The Oak Infusion Spiral has been effectively used by premium wineries in every major wine producing region and by some of the world's largest wine producers as well as small, family-operated wineries. It consistently produces a refined flavor and mouthfeel without the cost, space, time and hassle associated with barrels.
