Bureau Veritas Aging Certificate

Seasoning Certification

Natural seasoning is critical for American oak to achieve the best aromatic profile and softest tannins. Canton Cooperage is the first American oak wine barrel producer to have third-party certification of its natural open air-seasoning process. The Kentucky wood yard is adjacent to the cooperage and provides the ideal aging environment in a temperate climate. The barrel staves are aged 24, 36 and 48 months in the open air.
