For some, the term â€śWine Barrel DĂ©corâ€ť evokes images of kitschy knick-knacks, furniture, and planters and made from old wine barrels. Not anymore. Todayâ€™s burgeoning interest in wine, wine country lifestyle and wine-themed dĂ©cor is driving an enormous wave of interest in high-end decorative wood art incorporating or made from wine barrels and casks.
We see this trend across a broad range of markets – high-end restaurants and bars, elegant tasting rooms, modest eateries, fine home wine cellars and bars â€¦the list goes on. Some see wine barrel decor as a way to bring the casual, romantic charm of their favorite winery into their home or business. For others itâ€™s a modern update to the old world folk art of barrel carving. Either way, it seems to speak directly to the heart of the wine lover in almost everyone.
Our August trip to Southern Oregon wine country was wonderful!Â Â We visited many lovely wineries in the Applegate Valley and the Rogue River area. We attended Oregon’s WOW (World of Wines) Festival sponsored by the Rogue Valley Winegrowers Association and the Southern Oregon Winery Association. We tasted many fine award winning wines paired with fantastic foods. The event was held at the beautiful Del Rio Vineyards.
We recently introduced a cool new product that wineries, tasting room and restuarants just love. Its a double sided chalkboard easel (available in classic black or white dry-erase) with a very unique wine stave A-Frame design.Â …for only $179 !!
Wine barrels have been around a LONG time. Wine lovers have always been intrigued with their esthetics and with incorporating them into various forms of â€świne artâ€ť or â€śwood artâ€ť after they are retired from winemaking. They are still hand-made today by skilled artisans from the finest, clearest, most beautiful quarter-sawn oak that money can buy. Recycling the highest quality barrels into wine art is their best & highest use â€“ way better & higher than turning them into planter boxes.
We recently received several large new shipments of fine oak barrels from local wineries – the main raw material for our growing list of products.Â Our thanks to Bridlewood Estate Winery, Presidio Winery, Epiphany Cellars, Hitching Post Winery, Sanford Winery, Tensely WineryÂ for your continued support!Â Â Please contact us if you are a California Central Coast winery wishing to sell your retired French oak barrels!
