This is a unique opportunity to compare wines that have been fermented in stainless steel tanks vs. wines that have been fermented in oak casks. Wine that is fermented in stainless steel takes on a different taste. You'll get the chance to compare 7-8 wines that are in stainless, 6 months in oak, and 12 months in oak.
