I am interested in getting my hands on a few wine Barrels in the 10-15 gallon size range, preferably 10, to use for making lambic. Idealy they would be wine barrels that have been used enough to leech most of the tannins from the wood, barrels that a winemaker would be looking to retire. Of course I cant get them from a comertial vineyard; because, i cant fill up a 30 + gallon barrel easily or quickly enough. Do any of you winemakers have any barrels that you are looking to get rid of? My only criteria are that they are made of wood, dont leak, are around 10 gallons, and are not moldy.

Brett or lacto infections do not bother me, in fact, they are a plus.

If you are in the southeast that's a bonus as well.
Name your prices.:mug:

You could PM paulthenurse. Although he is in Boston, so that could be a problem for you. He may have a barrel to get rid of. I don't know that he does, but it's worth a shot.
