The Life of a Wine Barrel

wine barrels ready to be made into furnitureOak barrels have more than one purpose!

The life of an oak barrel is an interesting one. Barrels are made at cooperages, which you’ll find in winemaking regions all over the world. From there, the barrels head off to winemakers who use them to age their wines. Barrels may then be claimed by craft brewers, who are experimenting more and more with barrel aging. With millions of barrels in use around the world, it’s no surprise that old, used ones are repurposed in all sorts of creative ways. Here are some of our favorite ways to repurpose!

 

The French Oak Barrels we use are given a new life. Handcrafted locally in Millstadt, IL we create unique custom pieces and use every part of the wine barrel. To see how we make our pieces watch this video.
