Casks

Cooperage VBS Schön

 

The centrepieces of the company are our round and oval casks, they form the core work in our production. For the manufacture, the several staves of the cask get elastic on open fire and a necessary water humidification, which allows us to bent them into the desired form.

Afterwards a steady Toasting is guaranteed by a controlled temperature. 

On request (depending on the wine type) we additionally can work on the barrel with steam to adjust the concentration of the Tannin in the wood. 

The installation of stainless steel accessories, a careful high-class test and the painting make the production  perfect.
