  FAQ

 

1. How often to do I need to top up my port barrel?
You should top up your barrel according to how much you use. If you use your port barrel infrequently, it is advised to top up with a younger wine. However, if you use your barrel frequently, it is best to top up with a mature wine. It is also best that the barrel is filled no less than 1/3 of the total volume. Keep in mind that it is normal for a new barrel to absorb more wine in the beginning.
2. How do I clean my barrel?
For the outside of your barrel all you need to do is wipe it down with a damp cloth to remove any dust. The inside on the other hand does not need to be cleaned unless in any rare case, there is an excessive build-up of residue. If this occurs it is advised to drain the port into a container, use water to rinse the inside of the barrel out and then repour your port back into the barrel so you can use it as normal again.
3. How often should I taste my barrel wine?
It is best to taste your port barrel often. This is advised especially when using a new barrel as oak can flavour the wine more strongly in a shorter amount of time, compared to an older one. The size of the barrel and the cellar conditions, such as the temperature and humidity will affect the taste of your wine. For instance, a small barrel will need to be tasted more often than a larger barrel.
4. How do I store an empty barrel for long periods?
It is advised that the barrel should not be filled less than 1/3 of the total volume. However it is best to keep the barrel around half full.
5. How much port should I keep in my port barrel?
