Winemakers make a variety of decision when it comes to their craft. The use of oak barrels in aging wine is a complex series of considerations - the age of the barrel, what is the right amount of toast, and where is the forest where the oak tree grew.

Winemaker Joe Nielsen loves to test out all these different elements when choosing barrels. In this fascinating seminar, he will lead you through a tasting of the same variety and vineyard aged in different barrels to see how it affects the final outcome.
