Curious about how oak barrels are made? How the wood is selected? What the barrel is actually doing to the wine? Well, join us Thursday, May 14th, at 4PM on Facebook LIVE for Episode 2 of Destemmed LIVE. We will be discussing oak barrels in cold climate winemaking with Gina Shay of Tonnellerie CADUS.
