During ageing, the wine needs oxygen to evolve.

Oxygen contributes to the stabilisation of colour, the softening of tannins and the integration of wood compounds. The quantity of oxygen in contact with the wine must be controlled throughout ageing, adapted to the quality of the wine, the cellaring potential or the desired consumption time after purchase.

BARREL REFRESH 18 mm

Barrel Refresh 18mm inserts have an innovative cutting and attachment system for extremely easy application.
Watch our video on Barrel Refresh and see how easy the inserts are to use.
