Growing Region

Hungarian oak – Quercus Petraea and Quercus Robur – is sustainably sourced from a variety of forests throughout Hungary.

Seasoning

Oak seasoned for 36+ months in Hungary receiving more than an average precipitation of 650mm pa prior to shipment to our cooperage in the Barossa Valley, South Australia. The oak then undergoes another two-to-four months of conditioning and stabilising moisture contents in our cooperage facilities to enhance the oak’s unique properties.
