3 - Wine Terms - Regarding Barrels

1. Staves: The wooden slats that form the sides of a barrel. The metal rings, called hoops, compress the edges of the staves together to form a watertight fit without the used of any type of caulk or sealant.

2. Bung : A cylindrical stopper used to plug the "bung hole" in the side of a barrel to prevent leakage. Often made of silicone or wood.

3. Chime: An interior grove cut into the staves one either end of a barrel which forms a tight fit with the barrel "head" (the flat disk at the ends of a barrel). Quick fact, some coopers (barrel makers) use a wheat paste in the chime to help prevent leakage making the barrel not gluten free.
