The wood

The oak received has a slow growth and thin grains and it comes from the best woods. Apart from being dried “in origin”, which means in the right climate conditions and outdoors, the process has a length of minimum twenty four months. We can also offer a range of high-quality oak superfine grain, which is perfect for making the excellent wines. In addition, other sorts of barrels are made, such as, Acacia, Cherry Tree, Chestnut Tree… These types of wood have given precise results which are very well-valued, since they provide different qualities to our wines.
Since many years ago, Boteria Torner, has a Collaboration and Investigation Agreement with the Winemaking Faculty of the University Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona), where the wine results obtained, in all the range of wood used in our barrel-making, are investigated. The details of the results are available to our clients, in order to choose the barrel which suits best the client’s needs.

The toasted

The toasting is a very important part of the barrel-making process and essential when providing to the different cellars an identity and own personality. At Boteria Torner, spare wood pieces are the only ones used for the oven combustion. Therefore, a natural heat is achieved. This process is made with slow-fire and with a constant intensity which needs its time, and also the great experience and attention of the master tonneliers, who achieve the toasting effect, from light until plus, according
the to the client’s choices. All these factors, mentioned above, supply a toasting result of maximum quality.
