A.P. John,based in the heart of the Barossa Valley, is Australia’s Premium Cooper.
As coopers in the true sense of the word – we make Barrels. Although Coopering itself is an ancient craft, the trade as we know it was formalised as far back as 13th Century Europe with the official recognition of the Coopers Guild – a body whose name had already appeared in official records a century or more earlier.
Since that time, the cooper’s skills have been passed on from master cooper to apprentice throughout the generations to the present day.
Today those skills extend to the production and manufacture of a whole new spectrum of Oak related products designed to complement the winemaking process.
