Vivelys Selects G3 Enterprises as U.S. Distributor for Boisé® Oak Chips

Posted on July 11, 2016

MODESTO, Calif. (July 8, 2016) -- The Oeneo Group and G3 Enterprises, Inc. announced today that they will expand their partnership to include exclusive U.S. distribution of the Boisé® brand, a line of premium oak products helping winemakers to create precise and consistent wine profiles. Owned by the French company Vivelys, the Boisé brand is recognized as a world leader in innovative oak alternatives.

“Our goal is to combine the Boisé technical expertise with the strong sales and customer service of G3,” said Fida Bouchabke, CEO of Vivelys. She added, “G3 understands that Boisé oak chips enable winemakers to create very precise and consistent wine profiles, making the chips superior to other oak alternative products currently on the market.”

Boisé shares the same winemaking vision as its parent company, Vivelys: to enhance and customize the heritage of wine by integrating innovation at the heart of the production line. Boisé focuses on French Quercus Cecile Oak, which is considered among the very best oak wood available. Each of the eleven available chip styles has specific organoleptic characteristics that enable the winemaker to directly impact the wine aromatic profile and the balance in the mouth.

“We are excited to expand our partnership with Oeneo. Together, we’ve had great success with DIAM cork closures and we are confident we’ll achieve similar success for Vivelys’ Boisé oak chips,” said Mihailo Panovich, Vice President of Sales for G3 Enterprises. He added, “We look forward to leveraging G3’s strong sales and customer service support to meet the needs of winemakers throughout the country.”

While G3 will bring its wide distribution network and customer service expertise to the partnership, Vivelys will continue to have consultants based in California to help address customer needs and answer technical questions about the oak chips.

“We are pleased to work with our partners at G3 Enterprises to enhance Boisé® oak chips’ position in the U.S. wine market,” said Francois Moriniere, CEO of Oeneo. He added, “This partnership has been very effective and we’re excited to now begin focusing on Boisé®.”
