American, French, Eastern European, Spirit, and Hybrid barrels hand-crafted in the Napa Valley since 1980.
FIRST FRENCH COOPERAGE OF AMERICA:
2020 marked the 40th anniversary of the founding of Tonnellerie Francaise in Calistoga, CA. Since 1980 we have forged relationships, partnered with countless winemakers around the globe, and gained invaluable experience – we’ve rolled up our sleeves and worked hard, put in the hours, had many “spirited” family discussions, and learned through many trials (and even more errors along the way). Although none of that had quite prepared us for what we’ve all dealt with in the last 2 years.
As the 5th generation of Nadalié’s, we’re always looking to the future and ways to innovate, create, and continuously provide the very best products. However, during the pandemic what came through more clearly than ever was the deep appreciation we have for all who have supported us over the years. To the clients that have become friends, winemakers that have grown up in the industry and allowed us to grow with them, our loyal partners, and of course the dedicated staff who are the heart of this company and the ones that make us all look good – we thank you.
Seeing the impact COVID-19 has had on families in our communities has shown us it’s more important than ever to buy local. We’ve taken a close look at the vendors we work with and have made a conscious decision to support those that employee our friends and neighbors as much as possible.
We employ American workers at our Pennsylvania Mill where we produce our MN, MO, VA, and PA oak and at our Napa Valley Cooperage where our skilled artisans handcraft each American, Hybrid, and Eastern European oak barrel. We also employ a driver for our delivery truck, dedicated to our northern California clients. For our Oak Add-Ins line, we have production facilities in both the US and France.
Each step of the way, from raw material to delivery, our employees are proud to play a crucial role in a Made-In-America product of superior quality and distinction.
