Oak barrels are important in the production of many red wines and some white wines.  Barrels can be used to ferment the wine, or they can be used to age the wine after it has been fermented in another vessel like a stainless steel tank.  Where the barrels originate as well as the production of the barrels can affect the aromas, flavours, and texture of a wine.

A few posts ago, I wrote about oak barrels.  I thought I would post this quiz about oak barrels to see how much you remember from the post.  Don’t go back and re-read the article before taking the quiz.  It is 5-fun multiple choice questions like my previous quizzes.  Enjoy.
