The unfortunate thing about oak barrels is that they are generally only at their best the first few times of use. After that, the barrels become neutral and don’t offer the wine much aroma and flavor.

This makes it a pricy business for wine-producers; especially when have these used barrels and don’t know how to use them.

Interestingly, old oak barrels can still be used to store wine in. The only difference is that the wine won’t extract much aroma or flavor, but will simply soften from the slow oxygen contact. So, this is an excellent option for winemakers.

Alignement BoardThere are also several DIY opportunities to make furniture and décor from these barrels, which can either be sold for profit – or used by the winery.

Some of the furniture and décor that can be made from these barrels include tables, shelves, chairs, stools, light fixtures, wine racks, and wall-art.

So, while oak barrels are often a pricy investment that is only considered worthy for a few years, there are several great alternatives to ensure every part of this investment can be taken advantage of.
