I'm sure that someone with your experience has noticed a difference in personality between barrels of the same type from one cooperage.
Well the good news is that as we transition into the new (2020 is year one) relationship with Barrel Associates (BAI), we are hearing a lot of good things.
Part of the transition for Enotools is getting in touch with existing BAI customers and asking about their experince with the product. Most of the people I have talked to are with wineries Enotools already has history with; So I trust their feedback.
The people who are cooped up and happy to chat are volunteering very positive things about the Barrel Associates, D&J, or Vallaurine barrels, casks, and tanks they own. The one thing that really stands out as a recurring theme is consistency.
Over and over, I am hearing that our barrels are very predictable. When you consider the processes used at each cooperage in the BAI portfolio, it really makes sense.
