I don't know anything about it but you might be able to get casks from:

Beer Makers of America
1040 North 4th St.
San Jose, Ca

I noticed in their catalog (free including the phone call) that they
had oak casks, although I seem to remember that they were 55 gallon ones.
They do also sell wine makeing supplies so maybe they stock them for
that use.
