During one of our wine tour trips recently we met for the first time a producer (not the one on the photo) who rents his oak barrels instead of buying them. Buying French oak barrels cost a lot of money (between 600 and 800 euro for one 225-liter barrel) and renting can be a way to bring down the cost.

The Bordeaux-based company H & A Location offers rental of new oak barrels and a variety of services related to the administration and management of a chateau’s barrel cellar. The company has only been active for a few years but is growing steadily. www.halocation.fr

  1. See what happens to the barrels when they can no longer be used to age wine. My wife and I carve and paint them. Take a look at paulbolinger.com
