Vadai Barrels are made from the best quality oak of the world grown on the steep rocky hillside of the Famous Zemplen Forest of Hungary. The Zemplen Forest has the same oak species as the Quercus Petrea /Sessile tight grained white oak of Nevers and Allier of France.
Because of the unique mineral content of this soil, the barrels from this oak create an ultra premium wine taste. The staves are air dried for three years. The barrels are toasted according to your personal preference. You save money buying our barrels and you will make quality wines.
