WineStix are a new form of oak integration for wine, designed to give new barrel flavors with an extraction time similar to cubes. The combination of Short and Long grains result in amazing gradience of flavor similar to barrels, while extracting significantly quicker! These are Medium Plus toast French Oak staves, and depending on the wine, will impart roasted toasty aromas, with flavors of coffee and caramel sweetness the length of the palate. This is a two pack of WineStix, sized specifically for a 5-6 gallon carboy of wine. WineStix will easily fit through the mouth of a glass carboy, and can be attached to a string via the drilled hole for easy removal!

1" W x 8.5" Long

One carboy Winestix will treat 5-6 gallons of wine.

To give new barrel flavors to my neutral barrel.
Valued C on Oct 25, 2019
Oak Sticks work better for me because no small pieces or oak sludge. I use them even in my (neutral) old barrels.

Excellent oak products
Very easy to use and easy to work around when racking. Doesn't leave behind sediment to clog anything up.

Depending on varietal, I add these along with starting malolactic fermentation, then when malo is done I soak them with an SO2 solution while I transfer wine from malo to "aging" carboy, then rinse with purified water and place back in the new carboy for another several months (total about 3 to 4 months).

wooden sticks, what can you say about them?
not sure how to review a couple of wooden sticks, except I wish them would come with instructions for how to use them (sanitize them, boil them, etc.) and it would have been nice for them to come with a string to hang them in the carboy.

Easy to use and good results. Wondering whether they can be used next year?? Can they be sanded?

Sticks do the trick
Wine stixs does the trick especially if you have a couple of carboys filled with no barrel space left. Works for me.
