In Topic: Wine Barrels Sealed With Flour Paste

20 February 2009 - 08:26 AM

Thank you for the vineyard/label names that you have contacted Julirama - I was looking for a list! And it does appear this will be a maker by maker search/ inquiry -

The wine maker that I got the information from is American - NAPA Valley (J Lohr), and I understood that it was new and reconditioned barrels (they add new oak panels for flavor as well as repair). She advised to seek wine makers that use a stainless steel fermentation process - I also just found reference to white wines using new oak barrels sealed with flour paste.

I will start and edit a GLUTEN FREE WINE list here:
Tapena wines
Big House wines
Ten Spoon wines
* these wines have been posted as gluten-free by forum members on this thread, compiled for your convenience - please refer to the wine maker for current gluten-free information and questions

I also want to cross reference this thread for readers - it contains several good links for additional info. http://www.celiac.co...h...213&hl=wine

I just learned that wine barrels are sealed with flour paste - here is the response I received from a winery manager upon questioning her wine maker:

Apparently it's common practice to seal the barrel heads with flour paste. It's a mixture of unbleached flour and distilled water used to assure a leak-proof seal. Here's the web site with more info
