Szerednye barrel

Hungarian barrel type (formerly fauch Kassaier or Kaschauer Fass) with a volume of 200 to 220 litres, which is used today in the production of Tokaj. The name Szerednye hordó (hordó = cask) is derived from Szerednye, where the type used to be produced. This municipality, formerly part of Hungary, is now located in the far west of Ukraine (Ruthenia). See also under Göncer cask (old Tokaj cask), as well as complete lists under cask types and wine vessels.

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
