Since 1989, ReCoop Barrels, set among the vineyards of Sonoma County California, has been coordinating efforts with the local wine community to help reduce the wasteful elimination of wine barrels. Using our patented reconditioning process for over 20 years, our customers have benefitted from the reuse of a sustainable product while providing jobs for local residents. All barrels are skillfully remanufactured by our employees. No robots allowed – just good old fashion USA ingenuity.
An early innovator in reconditioning wine barrels; ReCoop Barrels was one of the first cooperages in California Wine Country to use specially engineered machines. Our patented machinery planes the wood with the grain, removing ¼” of the interior, ensuring all wine-penetrated wood is removed. Our process of planing with the grain (not cross-cutting) is used to achieve the utmost flavor from the oak and optimize the oxygenation benefits. A smooth interior finish allows for uniform toasting, revealing flavors of creamy vanilla, sweet toffee and butterscotch, to spicy undertones of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and nutmeg, or, a mild to rich smokiness, depending on your toast specifications, the original cooperage, and oak forest/region.
We take special care to select only barrels that pass our inspection process. ReCoop hand picks the best barrels from premier wineries that follow proven barrel maintenance programs. And, we adhere to stringent guidelines to ensure sanitation of the barrel is preserved.
Let us help reduce operating costs and your environmental footprint with a “green” alternative to a new barrel; either through the purchase of reconditioned barrels, or by reconditioning your existing barrels.
ReThink, ReUse, ReCoop.

ReCoop and Avoid Barrel Shortage for 2013
10 May, 2013
We recently began making 5 gallon barrels, in addition to our 10, 15, 20, 30 & 60 gallon barrels. We found a demand for the smaller barrels, not only by home winemakers, but by wineries that may have ended up with just a bit more wine.

The use of oak plays a significant role in winemaking and can have a profound effect on the resulting wine, affecting the color, flavor, tannin profile and texture of the wine. Oak can come into contact with wine in the form of a barrel during the fermentation or aging process. It can also be introduced to the wine in the form of tank staves inserted into neutral barrels. Barrel inserts can cost-effectively add oak with the benefits of barrel aging. Our experienced coopers will skillfully install inserts into neutral barrels on-site at your winery, or in the ReCoop shop.
- Moxon Inserts for Sale

After toasting this "like new" barrel can once again provide furfurals, trans-oak lactones, vanilluns and other beneficial oak compounds to produce award-winning wine.

Providing Winemakers with a Sustainable & Affordable "Green" Alternative to a New Barrel
27 July, 2011
ReCoop®, an early pioneer to reconditioning wine barrels, is celebrating 22 years in business. Our proprietary process is simple: ReCoop® using specially designed machines, planes the wood "with the grain", removing ¼" of the interior to ensure that all wine-penetrated wood is removed while maintaining the wood's integrity and allowing the stave to once again contribute its flavor and oxygenation benefits.
We take special care to select only those barrels that pass our inspection process.
