I am the ape-man, I am the walrus, koo-koo ka-choo!
Climbing barrels is tough work - but fun! In order to save space barrels full of wine are stacked four high - empty barrels are six high. So to do things like sulfur dioxide additions, topping wine (or taking barrel samples... hmmmm, barrel samples) you need to hop on up! It takes a bit to get used to but once you are going, you'll be a "barrel monkey" in no time.
