Barrel Making – a Commitment to Quality
Taste is everything here at Kendall-Jackson, so we tend to take barrels pretty seriously. To ensure a steady supply of the highest quality barrels possible, we invested in a French-based stave mill and formed a partnership with one of the leading cooperage companies. Overboard? Maybe. But our barrels are the best around … and you can taste the difference.
Founder Jess Jackson established a total commitment to quality for every aspect of the Kendall-Jackson winemaking program. So while it may have been a surprise to others, it was no surprise to our winemaking team when he formed a partnership with a leading cooperage company to ensure they had the best barrels possible at their disposal. With a team of expert coopers to work with, Randy Ullom and his team are able to match barrel styles to individual wine lots, carefully guiding the character and complexity of the finished wines.
