Another view of the barrel. It is even bigger than it looks because it is proportionally longer than a standard wine cask. It can hold 195,000 liters (over 50,000 gallons). Part of a farmer's tithe to the Elector (the title of the lord of the castle) was in wine. They would take all the random wine from all the farmers and just dump it together into this huge barrel, and then drink it. Bleah!
