WHY US?

WHY US?

 

The image says it all.  The good sense to use the best wood and the sense to know when to go with the grain towards innovation.

 

The Wine Stix® milled shape is unique in that it gives the impact of oak flavors to the wine as in “short grain wood products”, allowing less pieces of wood, and at the same time giving a more complex extraction of “long grain wood”, like the wooden barrel does, together in the same piece of wood!

 

Less Oak. Less Cost. Excellent Results.

WHY IT WORKS

WHY Wine Stix® and BeerStix™ WORKS

Both products are milled in a way that exposes short grain and long grain in the same piece of wood.

The shape is unique in that it gives the impact of oak flavors to the wine as in “short grain wood”, allowing less pieces of wood, and at the same time gives a more complex extraction of flavors due to the “long grain wood”;  like the wooden barrel does.

Because of the Wine Stix® and BeerStix™  milling  there is  gradient toasting in Light, Medium, Medium Plus and Burgundy level.

Gradient toasting is the only way to preserve the delicate, volitive sugars in Oak. This is exactly what takes place in the barrel making process.

This complexity acquired with our products are the closest Oak Alternative being made to replicate the flavor profiles of a Wooden Barrel.

HOW IT WORKS

HOW IT WORKS

 

A Wooden barrel exposes only long grain to the Wine, Spirits or Beer.

All barrel alternatives have degrees of short grain and some more than others.

The shorter the grain or “end grain”, the faster the liquid can saturate the wood as in products like chips, beans, spirals and cubes.   Also, the extraction of flavors from the wood is faster.   As the gang at MoreWine® said, “It’s like makin’ gravy-if you put in all the flour at once you may get the lumps!”.

So, long grain is very slow to be saturated by the wine and more complexity occurs naturally and more slowly during the polymerization process.

Excellent Wine, Beer and Spirits are made slowly with fine cooperage, results with our products are indistinguishable blind tasted, side by side.
