The Heinrich Story

Heinrich Alternatives has a unique heritage, dating back two decades. Working together with Australian winemakers, the Heinrich brothers developed high-quality oak alternatives. Original recipes were perfected through extensive collaboration. Years later, these distinctive recipes are showcased the the Heinrich Alternatives product line, which supplies wineries all over the world.

About Oak Alternatives

Oak alternatives are increasingly sought after by winemakers. They have further expanded a winemaker’s list of options from the traditional barrel and added a myriad of additional flavors that can be extracted from oak. We have perfected our recipes over the past decades, and instituted newer toasting technologies to produce high quality, consistent products. Whether you are looking to impart traditional oak flavours or highlight a particular flavour with more intensity, alternatives can achieve your goals, with excellent results during fermentation, aging and finishing.
