Best Oak

The professional difference.

Der fachmännische Unterschied

For many centuries, viticulture experts around the world have used the potency of oak to finish their best quality wines. 

Here in Rosenberg, Germany, we at J. Rettenmaier & Söhne - specialists in the use of vegetable fibre raw materials - have looked for ways of using valuable oak woods thorough detailed analysis and development work. 

The result: the BEST OAK® premium product series. More than just wood chips!


Unique and precious.

Einzigartig und edel

Our standards are in the highest class. 

With our premium products, selected primarily from native oak forests matured in healthy, well-tended environments, we create the conditions for unique development. 

Innovative, conservative production techniques set new standards. 

That's why we see our BEST OAK® product line well ahead of anonymous mass-market products. 

Exactly that makes BEST OAK® distinctive and valuable.
