“I think its safe to say most people know wine is fermented in barrels. The question is what happens to the barrels after they are used.

Not only are new wine barrels expensive ($700 for French Oak), but the supply of woods for these barrels is becoming scarce. Reclaimed barrels can be purchased for $50 a barrel, but the jury is still out on the desirability of these barrels.”
