Sol Oriens

Sol Oriens is a premium barrel offering, inspired by fine grain oak trees growing deep within the Topoľčianky forest of Slovakia. The high-quality staves are milled by expert merrandiers and naturally seasoned for 24 months at our own stave mill. These barrels offer unique characteristics while adding structure and balanced tannins to premium wines.
