Home Winemakers

StaVin also has solutions for people who make wine on a considerably smaller scale.

Oak Cubes (also known as Oak Beans) offer the home winemaker control and flexibility during red and white fermentations and aging. StaVin’s slow fire toasting creates the same traditional flavors found in the production of fire toasted barrels. Unlike Fermentation Chips, Cubes offer a slower, more complex extraction, matching barrel flavors.

Cubes can be added directly to carboys or small barrels (for exact dosages click here) as well as employed by way of a StaVin Infusion Tube. Best results will be achieved by fermenting with the Cubes and leaving them in the wine for the duration (until filtering and bottling).

Using Oak Cubes aids in the stabilization of color and helps cross-link tannins, which builds structure in wine.

foil_bagCubes are sealed in 8-ounce (227 g) poly-metal bags to retain aromatic compounds and protect the Cubes from contamination. Simply open the bag and add the pristine Cubes directly to the wine.
