For centuries, winemakers and distillers have used oak to bring out the best in wine and spirits. The biggest problem aside from the cost of oak barrels is the amount of time it takes for the oak maturation process to work. Between the cost, access, and time factors it makes it nearly impossible for just anyone to experiment with creating the own double cask aged finishes or sherry cask finishes at home. There is where Oak Bottlecomes in.
Our mission is to make products that enable anyone everywhere to experiment with crafting their own signature blends with a safe, easy to use, high quality, eco-friendly and sustainable product.
Joel Paglione, Founder
Joel Paglione is grew up immersion in the wine industry. His families winery “Paglione Estate Winery” is located in Harrow, Ontario Canada.
Reliably harvesting grapes from winery’s that exist in cold climate locations can be challenging due to the potential for signiant “vine freeze” that can occur in any given year. Therefore some wineries use smaller oak barrels to aid in getting the particular consistent oak aged flavor the wine maker or master blender desires in a shorter amount of time. Downsized barrels (about half the size of the 53-gallon barrels) allow wine from the abundant years to be bottled sooner and put on shelves more quickly. That realization led Joel to begin developing the “Oak Bottle” in 2013.
“Throughout my life I’ve always been fascinated by experimentation. I thrive on continually exploring new possibilities. The Oak Bottle is the manifestation of my adventurous spirit that I hope will inspire the explorer in you!” – Joel Paglione
