EXPERTISE AND INNOVATION
At the start of the 1980s, greatly encouraged by Professors Ribéreau-Gayon, Dubourdieu and Boidron, the partnership between SEGUIN MOREAU and the Enology Faculty of Bordeaux opened up what were still unexplored avenues for understanding wine/wood interactions.
Cooperage and enological practices were enriched by the discoveries, leading to advances in correct barrel usage throughout the world.
Drawing on an R&D team made up of three PhDs in enology, SEGUIN MOREAU is currently coordinating several research programs: internally, in the cooperage laboratory, and externally, with several university centers, including the Institute of Vine and Wine Sciences (Bordeaux), and the University Institute of Vine and Wine (Dijon).
SEGUIN MOREAU is also working in close collaboration with a panel of partner customers throughout the world on applied research programs in wineries.
