Storing and selling wine in beer barrels is so far relatively uncommon, and yet this form of packaging offers a host of advantages both in the quality of wines and their distribution and consumption. Hotels and restaurants which have already adopted the idea have discovered that it saves place while offering an on-tap solution with wine at the right temperature and barrels that are easy to handle. In addition, today there are different models of barrel, both recyclable and disposable, where the wine either is in direct contact with the counter-pressure gas or contained in a pouch which isolates it from the gas for greater security.
