INNOVATION TO BENEFIT WINE

The R&D teams in the various entities of the OENEO group are constantly focused on improving how wine interacts with wood and oxygen. It works with the support of international research institutes and prestigious universities (French wine-related institutes such as ISVV, INRA, IFV, CIVC, etc., and the universities of Bordeaux and Dijon in France, Beijing in China, UC Davis in the USA, AWRI in Australia, Geisenheim in Germany, etc.), in order to provide wines and spirits producers with the innovative products and solutions best suited to their needs.
From this desire to design ever more efficient products, numerous innovations have emerged, including:
  • At our Seguin Moreau cooperage, the process of mastering the oenological potential of « Icône » oak.
  • At Diam Bouchage, the patented “Diamant®” cork purification process.
  • At Vivelys, the first vineyard solution to assist grape profiling management, Dyostem®, and Scalya®, the first solution for vinification management.
