“Mercurey have been one of our regular suppliers of high quality French oak at Clonakilla for many years. We appreciate the high level of craftsmanship and the attention to detail that we find with this cooperage. Their commitment to innovation and product development with a range of oak selection programs and toasting regimes enable us to more easily match oak to the various Shiraz wines we make at Clonakilla. I am grateful too for the Mercurey team's commitment to customer service. I find them to be reliable and enthusiastic industry partners.” Tim Kirk Clonakilla



Reliability- Consistentcy - Integrity

Mercurey Australia Pty Ltd is the agent representing Tonnellerie de Mercurey in Australia since 1992. During this time Nadège and Tom Carson have proudly supplied high quality French Oak to a large number of award winning wineries all over Australia including Bindi,  Brokenwood, Clonakilla, Kaesler, Larry Cherubino, Leeuwin Estate, Mount Langi Ghiran, Pikes, SC Pannell, Tarrawarra, Vasse Felix, Yabby Lake, Xanadu, Yarra Yering, Yering Station and many more. The Carsons also use 100% Mercurey oak in their own winery Serrat.

The Tonnellerie de Mercurey’s philosophy is guided by an absolute commitment to the quality of their oak. " We only use French oak and we choose all our trees ".

The Tonnellerie de Mercurey is a family owned company who takes pride in their barrels, the commitment of their staff and the loyalty of their clients.

The mission of our coopers is to maintain the consistency, style and quality of their barrels through the selection, blending of staves and toasting. This guarantees the winemakers a reliable tool which will subtly and consistently enhance their wines.

The Tonnellerie de Mercurey has invested in a new cooperage. This state-of-the-art facility allows to combine the very latest cooperage technology with high quality wood and the experience of our master coopers, to ensure the very best outcome.

The Tonnellerie de Mercurey has been independently assessed and has obtained certification of their products and procedures (ISO) which guarantees very high levels of quality control, traceability and integrity of all processes – and certified HACCP (HAZARD ANALYSIS AND CRITICAL CONTROL POINT PRINCIPLES ) which brings a systematic approach to the identification, evaluation, and control of food safety hazards.

The Tonnellerie de Mercurey ensures 100% of its oak supplies through its own wood mill NT-Bois. This ensures a unique guarantee of traceability and control which is the essential factor of consistency.

NT- Bois was the first Stave mill in France to be certified PEFC.  The PEFC is committed to promoting sustainable forest management through independent third party forest certification. This is based on environmentally, socially beneficial and economically viable management of forests for present and future generations.

The Tonnellerie de Mercurey is totally committed to the long ageing of their oak staves and imposes upon itself an open-air maturation period of 24 to 36 months. The seasoning process takes place in Champagne at the NT-Bois maturation parks.

Also, Mercurey Australia Pty Ltd has been approved, through Ausindustry, for a tradex order for the reduction of duty on 65% of all barrels imported. These savings have always been passed on in full.
