Barriques and Botte

This is where our red wines spend from a couple of months to a couple of years, in the Barriquaia. The barriques hold 225 litres each and the big botte 3000 litres. Our barriques and botte are all French Oak and specially made to order. Once the wine is in wood it has to be constantly monitored and the wine levels checked on a a daily basis to ensure they are topped up and no air is getting in. Wine is absorbed into the wood so there is always a slight loss of wine which is normal - its called feeding the the wood!
