Our oak barrels are designed to be used right after their reception. However, sometimes you may not immediately put wine in it.
In this scenario, we advise you to keep your oak barrels in the plastic protection that we provided.
For storing, choose a place with high hygrometry: the humidity should be superior to 70% but without exceeding 90%.
The storing temperature of the barrels should not be superior to 22 Celsius degrees, which corresponds to 72 Fahrenheit.
Avoid drafts and other climatic variations that could cause the wood to modify its structure in a damaging way for the cask.
Ideally, your empty barrels will not be moved around too often.
