Used Barrels – some maintained for future wine, some decorative use only – Barrels are American XFG, medium toast, toasted heads, all totally NEUTRAL – you will need to chip these barrels for wood notes, see the Barrel Chip Infusion Tubes below.  Barrels $150 each, regardless of type.  If you want wine-use barrels, I will need time to drain them and get them ready for PU, and you will need to undertake your own cleaning at your receipt (ozone recommended).  I have SO2’ed them and filled them with clean, non-clorinated filtered water – no TCA possible.  No Bret or other issues in my winery.

Barrel Chip Infusion Tubes – 15 available, sold in lots of 5 – $200/5
