I don’t know much (ok I don’t know anything) about wine. But I do know that traditionally, the best wines have been stored in oak barrels as part of the aging process. The wooden barrels impart flavor, color and even texture to the fermenting beverage. That’s for the good stuff though. If your budget is more in line with the types of wine that you might find at your local Walmart, there’s still a way to improve their flavor – at least that’s what the folks at Oak Bottle claim. Their individual wooden bottles will impart oak flavor notes into wine in as little as 24 to 48 hours instead of several years. The bottles are priced from $60 to $90 each and are available in plain oak or oak with a variety of added flavors such as citrus, maple, cherry and more. Visit Oakbottle.com for more info.
