Vivelys Introduces Three New Boisé® Premium Staves at 2019 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium


Exclusively Distributed in the U.S. by G3 Enterprises

MODESTO, Calif.  (January 28, 2019) – Following the highly-successful launch of its Boisé Inspiration line of 100% French oak staves at last year’s Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, Vivelys returns to Sacramento to introduce three new premium staves as part of the Boisé Inspiration product line. The staves are unique to the market given their ingredient approach, which guarantees consistent results from one vintage to the next.

“Demand for the Boisé Inspiration staves has been great, and we are excited to introduce these three new products to help winemakers achieve their desired profiles,” said Francois Margot, Vivelys’ U.S. Manager.

Vivelys has long been recognized for its precision oenology and expertise on the interaction between wood and wine.  The new additions to the Inspiration stave product line being introduced at Unified include:

  • Boisé Inspiration #07.3: a 7mm stave which increases complexity and brings smoothness to the mouth.
  • Boisé Inspiration #20.1: a 20mm stave which strengthens fruit and concentration in mouth feel.
  • Boisé Inspiration #20.3: a 20mm stave which intensifies the elegance of wine and its richness in the mouth.

Like all Boisé products, the new Boisé Inspiration staves are manufactured in Aire sur Adour, France. The production site is certified PEFC and ISO22000.  The staves are the latest product resulting from Boisé’s relentless focus on research, innovation and product development.  Both Boisé Inspiration staves and Boisé oak chips are made from 100% new French oak.  Boisé relies on the latest production technology when manufacturing the staves, including analytical sorting of raw material, precise heat processing and oak-wine interaction experience.  All of this is backed by its own field support to ensure consistent performance, precision oak profiles and desired results on targeted wine profiles.

The introduction of the three new Boisé Inspiration staves marks the latest offering in the successful partnership between Vivelys and G3 Enterprises, the exclusive distributor of Vivelys’ full line of Inspiration staves as well as Origine and Signature oak chips. Symposium attendees can learn more about the new Boisé Inspiration staves by visiting either the Vivelys’ booth

#1413 or G3 Enterprises’ booth #1502 at the Symposium.

“G3 Enterprises is excited to be a part of this introduction as we continue to expand our partnership with Vivelys.  Given the success and demand for Boisé Inspiration staves this past year, we are confident these three new stave products will be very popular,” said Mihailo Panovich, Vice President of Sales for G3 Enterprises.  He added, “We look forward to leveraging G3’s strong sales and distribution team to meet the needs of winemakers throughout the country.  We are confident they will want to try these new innovative staves.”

During Unified, attendees can also learn more about the new Assistant Visio program which enables the user to provide the exact amount of oxygen needed by the wine to optimize aging.  Not only is the aging process shortened by the oak, but aromas are better integrated and the tannins are softened.  By focusing on the tannins, Visio can increase the aging potential and protect the wine from oxidative risks enabling it to be aged in an optimal, totally secure manner.
