Cooperage "ASTRA"
manufacture and repair of barrels
                 for wine and spirits


       Love between oak and wine exists from immemorial time. The cooperage is a living tradition. Bulgarian oak is used for  the production. From the century-old oak wood comes the tree which in gold hands of craftsman becomes a quality barrel that can serve you for a lifetime. Oak material dries more than two and a half years under natural conditions. The overall production is in line with all European  quality requirements. In barrels wine develops and its taste improves. Oak is irreplaceable. It is valued for its mechanical properties: strength and flexibility but more because of its chemical properties and fine structure which helps the beneficial “breathing” of wine. Among the substances which wine derives from the oak the most important are phenolic compounds (tannins) and from them Vanillin affects the taste most.

  • Made from high quality oak core

  • Thermally charred in customer`s requirement
