Fast becoming a real contender and source of wood for barrels, Hungarian oak is now taken seriously and no longer looked down upon by wine makers who wish to achieve fine results from their wine.

Although it’s structurally similar to what is found in France, it is less intense and has slightly different qualities including less tannin. Research shows that its hemicellulose breaks down more easily forming a different spectrum of toasty aromas. The wood used to make these barrels is open air dried for around 18 months before being made into barrels which contributes to the quality of these barrels.

Comparisons between this type of barrel and French are considered to be a compliment, as more and more wine makers resort to using this type of oak instead of the French variation, opting for the more economical of barrels.

Please note that no wine barrels are warranted. Barrels are made of wood which is a natural product and therefore cannot be warranted for leakage or other defects. If a problem does arise, we will do our best to resolve it.
