Welcome to Knox Barrels

We take our customers and our products and service very seriously, but we take ourselves lightly. We hope this site helps you make better decisions about barrels, and keeps you away from other cooperages.

We represent three cooperages in North America:

Tonnellerie Francois Freres

Based in Saint Romain, Burgundy, Francois Freres is celebrating 100 years of expertise making barrels for great wines. We represent Francois Freres and Francois Freres Hungary in the United States of America.  Get 2014 prices for FF French oak or FF Hungary.

Tonnellerie Taransaud

Based in Cognac, Poitou-Charente, Taransaud makes barrels, puncheons, tanks, ovals, etc. for the world of wine. We represent Taransaud in the Western United States, British Columbia and Baja California.  Get 2014 prices for Taransaud.

Kadar Hungary

In 2008 Tonnellerie Taransaud entered into a joint venture with Budapesti Kadar and the result is Kadar Hungary.  If you like Taransaud, you'll love Kadar!  Get 2014 prices for Kadar Hungary.

We aim not only to feature news about our products but about the world of barrels and oak in general. And on that note... This I Believe.
