The tour begins at the Dr. Konstantin Frank winery where we head underground to our barrel cellar. Here you will learn the process of barrel production, the different types of oak and where they originate from, and alternatives to barrel aging with amphora. We will taste two wines, one unoaked and one oaked, to explore the differences between them, and taste current vintage wines aging in barrel. At the conclusion of the tour, a seated flight of wines are paired with the chef’s seasonal bites where you taste wines that have aged in barrel of varying levels of new oak and time.
