Wine barrels remain popular, but some producers moving to alternatives

Barrels are one of the icons of winemaking, usually seen laying on their side in the corner of a production area, aligned in rows and stacked on metal arms. They speak to the romance of a product that's tied to the gods and immortalized in a way unlike any other beverage. In many wineries, they're a crucial part of preparing that product, offering a breathable compartment that's so crucial for aging.
