This product is the result of research by our collaborators into rationalising the use of normal ‘tonneaux’ in wine cellars.
They combine the ease of use typical of large casks with the speed of ageing in 750-1,000 litre barrels because the tonneaux are automatically constructed ready for use and can be fitted with the same accessories as casks.
This facilitates use and cleaning because they do not need to be moved. They are constructed with two types of staves: split or 40-45mm, and 55mm quarter sawn.
