Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR THE ACCELERATED AGEING OF WINES AND SPIRITS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method and system that allow the accelerated ageing of wines and spirits on a pilot scale and on an industrial scale, through the combined use of woodchips previously soaked in wine, ultrasound and oxygenation. The technical solution used in the invention is based on performing the processes of extraction and oxidative ageing separately. The process for extracting the compounds from the wood is performed in a tank using ultrasound, the tank being connected and in continuous circulation with a second supply tank in which oxidative ageing is performed by means of continuous aeration or a micro-oxygenation device.
