Seguin Moreau Napa Cooperage blends its French heritage with its American resources- for a melding of the best of both worlds. In 1986, the company expanded to full-time representation in the Napa Valley, due to the California wine market, which had been growing exponentially since the early 1970's. The cooperage was established less than 10 years later. Seguin Moreau continues to build on nearly two centuries of tradition and more than three decades of pioneering oenological research, consistently delivering top quality oak for wineries' barrel programs. Aging in barrel is a key step in the production of great wines and spirits - the barrel is a key transformational element - lifting the wine's fruit with a harmonious complexity.
