Ultra Premium American Oak Wine Barrel - 53 Gallon
Ultra Premium American Oak Wine Barrel - 53 Gallon – Made in the USA – Our 53 gallon American oak wine barrel is of superior quality. We are committed to working with our cooper to deliver a superior quality wine barrel. Only the finest, tight-grain, slow growth American oak (Quercus Alba) from Central Kentucky, Southwest Kentucky and Minnesota is chosen to be used. The oak is air-dried for at least two years and exposed to both winter and summer weather. The staves (side pieces) are bent and toasted over oak fires using old world methods. The slow toast penetrates deep without blistering or scorching allowing the barrel to impart the oak overtones valued by the discerning winemaker. Six galvanized hoops are fitted to maintain maximum structural integrity. This barrel ships by truck or is available for in-store pick up whne in stock.
