The source of barrel wood

The source of barrel wood

Traditionally in the Penedès wooden barrels for ageing wines were made from the wood of the Chestnut tree.

Today, the vast majority of red and white wines that are made or aged in barrels use barrels made of oak, which is usually French, American or of other origins.

Nonetheless, some Penedès producers still use barrels made out of chestnut or acacia.
