Letter of the Day: Are wine barrels next?

  • 7/7/2013: E1:

    PC: Winemaker John Raytek takes a break from filling oak barrels to age his wine from the full tanks at Punchdown Cellars in Santa Rosa on Wednesday, July 3, 2013. Many wineries are concerned about whether there be enough space in the tanks to crush all the grapes from this year's particularly big harvest. (Conner Jay/The Press Democrat)

<b>Are wine barrels next?</b>

EDITOR: The Food and Drug Administration has determined that wood "cannot be adequately cleaned or sanitized" ("The big cheese debate," Thursday), although it has been safely used in cheese production for centuries. Are wine barrels next?
