History of the Oak Infusion Spiral

A wine's taste is going to depend on it's origins and it's upbringing.

The process of properly aging wine has historically included storing it in oak barrels for years. Oak is second only to the grapes themselves in the hierarchy of components that directly impact the final product. Most people enjoy the degree of "toast" created by aging wine in oak barrels, but waiting years for this process to play out? Really? There must be a better way. Well, there is!

In 2005 the Barrel Mill patented the Oak Infusion Spiral. The Barrel Mill has been in the Oak business for over 90 years. We know Oak. The Oak Infusion Spiral is an oak barrel alternative used to add flavor and aroma to fine wine, but also can be applied to whiskey, rum and beer. It has been used in thousands of wines since 2005 with outstanding results from every major wine region in North America. The unique spiral-cut design creates unrivaled surface area in a small package, allowing fast extraction of the toasted oak's aroma and flavor compounds with refined integration in the wine. This product adds flavor, aroma, color and texture to wine 8X faster than Barrel aging. It is low cost and low hassle.

We choose only the finest oak for the Infusion Spirals. All oak is outdoor aged for a minimum of 2 years.
