ADOPT-A-BARREL. For only $20 a year…Use it as often as you want.

A unique service we provide at Winexpert Pickering is Barrel Ageing. Very few people in the on premises winemaking industry provide this due to the extra cost, labour and knowledge needed.

Barrel ageing does the following to 6 and 8 week red wines:

a) softens the wine by softening the acidity.

b) extracts components from the wood such as tannin and vanillin lending more complexity to the wine.

c) allows the wine to start developing bouquet (nose).
