Live Barrel Toasting Demonstration: 
A new event has been added to the line-up for Barrels In The Plaza! Tonnellerie-O is proud to participate in this year's Roll Out The Barrel's event with a unique demonstration of the art of the barrel. Expert cooper Salvador Canchola will show the audience the timeless craft of building, shaping, and toasting a barrel using 3-year seasoned oak harvested from the region of Allier in Central France. Salvador will also be available to answer questions regarding the details of barrel construction and oak sourcing during this rare and fascinating look at the creation of one of the most important components of great winemaking. Attendees will also participate in a cooperative tasting featuring SLO Coast wines, and learn from the winemakers about how barrel toasting plays a part in the winemaking process.
