We renew old used wine barrels into decorative better-than-new pieces that are made strictly to look at or as a table. However, the original barrel has a completely different story to tell – before they become winemaker’s tool.
The great wines of the world have one thing in common – they began their life in a white oak barrel, created in one of the many cooperages of the world. I find this particular video to be very informative and will show you in a relatively brief time, just how a barrel is made from the time it is a tree, all the way to when it’s time to put wine in them.
If you have any questions about wine barrels, feel free to contact us and we’ll try our darndest to get you the answer if we don’t know it.
By the way, keep an eye out for a multiple part story of a barrel during his time as a wine barrel as he travels nearly halfway around the world, only to be rescued by a couple of nice guys. 😉
