Gusmer Oak Products Oak-Mor ® and Oak Avantage ® Offer a Complete Line of Oak Adjuncts

Gusmer Enterprises, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of oak products for the wine industry. As a pioneer in the oak adjunct market, Gusmer introduced the use of Oak-Mor ® granular oak to the winemaking process in the early 1970’s. With the launch of our Oak Avantage ® , we now offer a wide range of chips and granular oak products to wineries worldwide. What was once created as a method to rejuvenate or enhance oak character in wine barrels has now become a tool for producing the highest quality wines. Our oak products allow winemakers more options and control in adjusting flavor, aroma and tactile characteristics, and in color stabilization. Use these oak products throughout the winemaking process, from fermentation through aging. Gusmer is uncompromising in raw material selection. Only the highest quality American and French oak from premium heartwood qualifies for our programs. Our proprietary toasting process brings out very distinct oak attributes, such as vanilla, butterscotch, clove, smoke, and others. Consistent, predictable results are the hallmark of Gusmer’s oak program, offering only the finest oak adjuncts. We offer a variety of sizes and toast levels, as well as extensive winemaking expertise, all to assure the proper application in your process. Gusmer Enterprises’ wide product offering, unmatched quality control and established reputation make us a premier supplier of oak products. “ Ease of measurement for both determination of use in trials and batches has helped many red and white wines, from use in primary fermentation to post fermentation applications. In white wine, post-use has long showed not only a component transfer but also some fining ability. This has also applied in cider and apple wine use. I have shared this knowledge with other winemakers for at least 25 years and continue to find new applications for use of Gusmer’s oak barrel alternative products. ” Wayne Stitzer, Winemaking Consultant
