Patent application of the square barrique under the name of "Cybox".
Experiments in test facilities lead to positive results. The barrel is further optimized and gets first awards.
Production of square barrels labeled "Cybox" begins. Innovative winemakers like Laurent Munier from Tartenin are among the first enthusiastic customers. A dispute over the right to market disrupts the start of the company. Only 2011, when Dominique Zorn and Cyrille Savioz merge, they start a market driven approach.
