The oak barrel for grands crus
Zero tertiary aromas
Toasted with lava stone, PETRA grand cru barrels are designed in collaboration with oenologists anxious to offer unique wines, that enhance their terroir and express the values of their property.
Designing oak barrels that do not affect the wine.
Consumers are coming back from parkerized wines. Unfortunately, the wood and the toast have standardized the taste and altered the identity of each property, spoiling the efforts of oenologists and the pleasure of connoisseurs.
Our mission: Provide specialist advice and barrels that protects the wine's identity without compromising on quality.
An innovative and patented process,
which is unique in the world!
We select the best oak by working
only with 3 origins that are traced and controlled.
We produce fresh barrels in small
batches and perform double
tests on their sealing.
Exclusive: We toast our
barrels with lava stones
according to 3 aromatic philosophies.
We design our barrels to achieve
the taste aimed by each oenologist.
Wine-tasting and the description of the oenologist's objectives create the foundation of a tailor-made recommendation.
of ad hoc barrels
We produce a small batch of barrels according to 4 parameters which contribute to the desired final result.
The batch of definitive barrels will join the cellar after an in situ test and a taste control.
A word from the founder
“I discovered the facets of wine creation in France and internationally. I really wished to give back the power to oenologists, whose art fascinates me, but I couldn't find a job which was consistent with my philosophy. So I created my own cooperage in search of the perfect barrel. Today SURTEP offers the PETRA range, toasted with lava stone, and a more classic high-end range.”
