Oak chips as an alternative to barrels in the quest for aromatic wines.

Etienne Hosteing, founder of Protea France, was one of the first to develop an official French range of oak chips, staves, sticks or zigzags for oenology. With the development of a patented thermo treatment for oak chips, Protea provides an alternative to the barrel, making it possible to offer a range of aromatic products that are recognised worldwide for their quality and consistency.

In mastering the techniques of oak heating,extraction, or even concentration, Protea is able to advise companies that are renowned in the sectors of winemaking and spirits.
