For white wine, soak 1 cup of chips for an hour and add to 5 gallons wine. Try 2 cups for a red wine. Allow to soak in wine until the flavor profile is what you want, then strain out during the next racking. You can also try making a ‘tea’, simply boil in water for 10 minutes, then add the tea to taste.
