Yep its the biggest one I have seen, however it is only a wine barrel. If you haven't seen one before you might as well see this one. It is within the Old Castle grounds

Very large wine barrels - what else can one say? Can be found in a basement of the old castle. Impressive examples of wooden construction, but only worth seeing if you are already within the castle.
