After two centuries of life, the heart of the oak tree gives soul to the wine and raises it to the ranks of the aristocracy. Every taster should respect this sacrifice. The species, origin, age, drying methods and level of barrel toast all help to give fine wine its extra special charisma.

The Oak kit is a 'must have' for all aficionados, dedicatedstudents and wine makers.
