Our story

Quercyl SAS, a family saga

Producer of tannins for wines, oak extracts and plant extracts for a century.

For 120 years, our family business Quercyl, has specialized in the extraction and manufacture of plant extracts.

As early as 1905, we developed a method for extracting the aging principles contained in wood, particularly in oak. 

Then becoming pioneers in the research of innovative methods applied to the aging of wines and spirits, we have since extended our know-how to plant extraction on other genus species.

We have always worked with the purest respect for nature and tradition, using the finest raw materials.

Our certifed laboratories and production lines allow us to obtain the purest extracts, while retaining their natural organoleptic properties.
