FRENCH WINE BARRELS

The wine barrel as we know it today, built with woodenstaves, was most likely developed by the Celts. They arrived in the 23rd Century BCE in an area known today as the Burgundy/ France. Wine aged in new oak barrels (barrique) takes on some of the compounds in the barrels, such as vanillin and wood tannins.
The presence of these compounds is dependent on many factors, including the place of origin, how the staves were cut and dried, and degree of "toast" applied during manufacture. After roughly three years, most of a barrel's flavour compounds have been leached out and it is well on its way to becoming "neutral".
To retain the desired measure of oak influence, a winery will replace a certain percentage of its barrels every year.
This is when we pick up the wine barrels to build unique furniture and accessories.
