Maintenance
Oak can darken and silver through time and the effects of weathering. This process will, however, take a while and can be prevented/delayed through regular pressure washing.

Finishing Touches & Colour
Because our barrels are sourced from a number of high end vineyards, they feature a variety of finishing touches. All are based around a core design that include standard, hand curved staves and metal bands, but finishing specifications do differ. These include willow bands to top and bottom, supporting braces to both faces and vineyard specific markings. Some are daubed with red paint around the bilge to indicate the colour of wine their batch contains. All barrels start out light in colour, but as with any timber product, will silver over time. The colour of your barrel will depend on how long it has been in our stock. Barrels can be restored through pressure washing, sanding and/or the use of oxalic acid if required.
