Our day in the Chianti wine region of Tuscany!

... French oak barrels. You only use the barrel once for wine because it absorbs most of the oaky flavours and properties after one use. Often times these barrels are sold to whiskey makers who like the flavours the wine gives their product and other times the barrels are simply sold and turned into furniture.
