California

“I wanted to make something that would not only relate to the wine industry, but would respect nature and the wood that had been harvested.”

There’s no shortage of beautiful scenery in Napa Valley. But when longtime wine enthusiast Bob Yates moved to northern California, his eye honed in not on the lush valleys or panoramic vistas, but on the heaps of weathered wine barrels he spotted during winery visits. “There should be a way to transform these discarded barrels to get more use from the many trees that were destroyed to make them,” he thought.

And so he created one, channeling a 30-year woodworking hobby to turn end-of-life wine barrels into a line of home goods. “I wanted to make something that would respect nature and the wood that had been harvested,” he says. To this end, his designs–which range from barrel tables to flight staves–are both decorative and functional. “I want people to use and enjoy them,” he says, “not just look at them.”

          The curve wood makes it very attractive and the recessed openings in the wood for the glasses make it sturdy. For me personally, I wish the glasses were bigger (6 oz. instead of 4 oz.) but that is my only complaint.

            I bought this as a gift for my husband. I ordered two so he could enjoy a flight with friends, otherwise the beer might be wasted. Unfortunately, because these are made from repurposed barrels and are so unique, the two I received were very different in size - one double the width of the other. It would be nice if they offered the option to purchase as a set. We ended up ordering a third and keeping the two that were most alike, and we will probably gift the third to one of his friends. Otherwise, we are very pleased with this beautiful flight set.

                  It took 3 shipments to get 4 glasses. Reported the packing problem and the 3rd package was wrapped in bubble wrap but the glass wrapping was unchanged. There was a small sleeve of thin bubble wrap on each glass and the botom of each glass was inside the mouth of the next one. Poor, poor packaging. Very wasteful for a company that offers recycled products.
