The Importance of Oak in Winemaking

There are certain classic images that spring to mind when people think about the winemaking process – frenetic scenes of vintage, bunches of grapes hanging on the vines, hand picking, even that age-old tradition of foot stomping and plunging the fruit once it hits the winery.
