The french forests

One key principle guides us: Respect the ‘’ terroir’’ of the different Forests.

We select our logs from the best French Forests, managed by the National Office of Forests (the government administration depending on the Minister of Agriculture) and sold in different lots by auction for coopers each year. A few lots are also bought from private owners. Forests from the Paris region, the Center of France, Normandy and Vosges are the most demanded by the Tonnelleries.

Days, weeks, and months are necessary to visit, estimate and eventually gain these lots of forests that are so difficult to procure. This ongoing research is imperative to get the proper logs to split and craft perfect staves and ensure high quality.
