Oak Wise Is a Leading Producer of Quality Oak & Oak Derived Products Supplying a Diverse Section of the Beverage Industry


  • Raw material of high quality sourced from the same forests as for barrels
  • Technical and customized advice by our team of product specialists
  • Consistency achieved by total control of the production process
  • Full traceability guaranteed from raw material to the finished product delivered

We buy oak in France from the same forest auction origins as do all participants in the French Barrel industry who are not sourcing in Eastern Europe. We transport fresh cut oak to the company owned facility in Nivolas Vermelle which lies between Lyon and Grenoble. Our French oak is sourced from the center of France (Allier, Never and Bourgogne regions) and from the Vosges region.

Our American oak is sourced from forests in Missouri, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Fresh cut material is stored in our company owned facility in Winchester Virginia.

Oak Wise 100% Natural Aqueous Tannins

Oak Wise 100% Natural Aqueous Enological Oak Tannins represent a quantum leap in the science and efficacy of oak additions for beverage production. They are a family of liquid oak tannins which give winemakers, brewers and distillers complete control over all the organoleptic and structural elements that oak provides to beverages.

Our tannins are suitable for use in beverage production and comply with 27 CFR 24.246 of the Alcohol, Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau (TTB) Electronic Code of Federal Regulations e-CFR when used at our recommended dosage rates.

Premiere is a range of structuring aqueous oak tannins. In wine, they can be added at primary or malolactic fermentation and aging. Premiere will assist in binding pyrazines, aid in color fixation, and tannin polymerization. In wine, the recommended dose rate for Premiere  is 0.2 ml/L – 5.0 ml/L added as late as 48 hours prior to bottling. In spirits, Premiere can be added before bottling or during alcohol dilution prior to barrel aging.  For use in spirits, we recommend using Premiere up to 20% of the makeup of water volume.

Finissage is a range of clear finishing tannins for use in finished wines or to adjust the astringency in cider, beer or spirits. Finissage will soften mouthfeel and increase the fruit aromatics. In wine, the recommended dose rate is 0.2 ml/L – 5 ml/L. In beer and spirits, we recommend adding Finissage to the finished product between 0.5 ml/L to 5 ml/L. Finissage can be added up to 48 hours before filtration or bottling.

Premiere CT is a range of concentrated aqueous oak tannins. CT will assist in increasing the aromatics of oak characteristics such as toast, spice and the complexity of any beverage. CT will help produce a final product that denotes extended barrel aging. Dose rates from 0.1 – 2ml/L
