The Old Wine Barrel Company - French Oak Bagette Boards - Carving Boards - Chopping Blocks - French Oak Platters
The winemakers of the Western Cape region of South Africa import beautifully hand crafted barrels from the famous ' Tonnelleries ' (coopers) of France. Made from 100 year old oak timber... each one is an original with its own unique oak flavour and character. Every barrel is used to mature several different wines, usually finishing off with a red wine... but they only have a limited lifespan in the winery and after a number of years have to be replaced with new.
We then purchase the old barrels directly from the wine estates and bring them to our workshops where we recycle and transform them into our beautiful products .... extending their lives for ever!
We take great pride in the exceptionally high standard and quality of our merchandise, still managing to retain the authenticity and history of where this beautiful old timber came from.... with the richness of the red wine still clearly visible throughout the grain of the French oak.
All of our unique hand crafted products are made from recycled French oak wine barrels
