Founded in 1912 by TW Boswell, World Cooperage is one of the top producers of American, French, and Eastern European oak barrels in the wine industry. Four generations of Boswells have been involved in the family business. Today, it is headed by John Boswell as CEO and he is asssited by Brad Boswell, Joe Boswell, and Amie Boswell Dewane. The company still expounds the values of it's founder: committment to a quality product with quality service. The company enjoys an international reputation for doing just that.
The Boswell Foundation and World Cooperage are donors to the department's winery campaign. The barrel room at the new winery will be named the World Cooperage Barrel Room, in honor of the family business.
