Wood characteristics

For manufacturing of our small oak barrels we are use the highest quality European White Oak (Quercus robur). As this type of oak tree grows in cold climate, yearly growth of the wooden rings is very thin which makes the wood grain very tight. A tight grain means the wood is less porous, and therefore is more likely to make a watertight product. Before Oak Wood is used for production, it is seasoned under natural conditions for at least 2 year, however certain wood remains there for 3-4 years. This exposure to the rain, wind and sun helps to reduce green tannins.
