Barrel alternatives: a modern approach to oak ageing

For centuries, winemakers have utilized oak barrels for making wine. This relatively simple vessel currently serves several functions for producing high quality wines including oxidative development and flavor/aroma extraction. While oak barrels are currently still considered the standard vessel for high quality wines, using oak barrels imposes some major challenges for winemakers. In recent years, practices have been developed which allow winemakers to produce the effects of ageing in oak, without the challenges associated with oak barrels. In this presentation, we will discuss tools and strategies for producing quality wines, without purchasing cumbersome oak barrels.
