    Vicard Generation 7 was born from a desire to control the factors that cause variability in cooperage, and bring greater precision to wine and spirit maturation. With six generations of expertise, Jean-Charles Vicard launched the seventh update of a intensive R&D program started in 2008 and now leads the industry in understanding the relationship between wood and wine.

    Vicard Generation 7 utilizes NIRS (Near-Infrared Spectroscopy) technology to select staves based on their tannin potential and toasts using computer controlled radiant heat toasting. This unique combination has enabled Vicard Generation 7 to offer very precise, uniform and reproducible products.
