    Wine ages/ is aged in barrels.

    1. Wine ages in barrels.
    2. Wine is aged in barrels.
    Which of the above sentences is correct?

    By the way, what does the sentence "She has aged well." mean?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: Wine ages/ is aged in barrels.

    Both sentences are grammatically correct. #2 would be better. We usually speak of something like wine "being aged."

    If someone has "aged well" it means they do not look as old as they are. That they are still attractive.
