The Cooper's Signature

Each Cooperage has its specific process of toasting which constitutes “the signature” of the Cooper.


Vernou Cooperage offers four levels of toasting :

  • Light toasting (L) 

  • Medium toasting (M)

  • Medium plus toasting (M+)

  • Heavy toasting (H)

While operating in three technics :

  • The standard toasting.

  • Slow and long toasting (S), for delicate oak profile as well as respecting the fruit characteristics. 

  • Intense at the end of the toasting (R), for concentrate and big wines.
