Underground Barrel Storage
Caves have long been recognized as the ideal environments for aging and storing wine. During aging, barrels lose liquid through the slightly porous wood of the barrel. The rate of evaporation is driven primarily by temperature, humidity, and stave thickness. The advantage then of caves and/or underground barrel storage is constant temperature and relatively high humidity. Eagle Wine Company’s barrel facility is underground, buried in a hillside, maintaining a constant temperature around 60°F with relative humidity ranging around 65%.
EWC provides bonded wine storage in clients barrels. Storage services are billed monthly based on physical inventory. Please contact Corey Sprott for current rates.
