Oak Barrel Aging Schedule

Here at RAINY CRICK, we provide the best quality wines, includs our unique Oak Barrel Aged wines.

"Oak" aging is becoming wine making’s hottest trend, which is not surprising when you consider some of the oldest and most respected European vinyards have used oak for centuries. The wine takes on some of the natural compounds in the barrel such as vanillin and wood tannins.

The addition of natural oak tannins that seep into the wine adds body, complexity and a plethora of aromas that make for tantilizing bouquets. Barrel aging allows slow oxidation which matures the wine, helping the various components meld together, giving it more structure and harmony, resulting in a robust wine, that awakens your taste buds.

The process is simple. We will start each batch with customer, after filtering process the wine will be transferred into the barrel to mature. 

Since there is only limited space available (10 batches per oak barrel), we recommend you to reserve your wine earlier. The list below shows the oak barrel wine we have available for order.
