Bob Yates

Bob Yates took a 30 year hobby of woodworking and coupled it with a passion for wine to create a viable business: transforming end of life wine barrels into handsome, furniture grade home furnishings.

Bob has long been a wine enthusiast, but a job move to northern California presented him with the opportunity to frequent many of Napa Valley's boutique wineries. He noticed many empty used and weathered wine barrels accumulating during his winery visits. He was inspired to apply his woodworking skills to transform the barrels. What resulted was the creation of unique, attractive furnishings that are functional and decorative.

Bob now has a complete catalog of products in every price range for wine, craft beer and fine spirit enthusiasts. His attention to detail and product quality is evident in the way his unique designs embrace the functionality of each item. collection

    Comments about BEER TASTING FLIGHT:

    Purchased this flier for my brother that home brews and is now opening a business. Thought a flier would be appropriate for his birthday and his business venture. When he received it, he said it was "AWESOME" and that he loved it.

      My Aunt loves her gift! But I notice that the glasses don't sit evenly on the base. Over all it's an attractive design to sit on your bar.

        Comments about BEER TASTING FLIGHT:

        My hubby is a beer geek to the umpteenth degree. He is so hard to buy for, esp when it comes to beer related products. One thing he did not have for our home bar was a tasting flight. This was so unique and attractive I figured what the heck. It arrived very securely packaged, no broken glass. And he was very happy when he unwrapped it, I could tell right away it was a winner. The curved wood makes it easy to grip and carry. He loved that you could see a band where the red wine had stained the barrel. Big winner all around.

              I'm not the least bit worried about the quality or workmanship of the Beer Flight. Uncommon Goods has never sold me something I haven't loved. This is a gift and therfore I haven't opened it. The box doesn't rattle when I shake it so I'm not worried.

              I am even less worried that my hombrew associate, for whom this is a gift, will be completely and utterly enthralled

              Service and delivery comments:

              The reason I am writing this is that the Flight made it to us in South America in a record five days with not a scratch or ding to the box. It arrived a full month before the pair of shoes that I ordered for my wife, the same day, showed up. That might just be the luck of the draw with the Post Office but I would like to think it is all the Good Juju that Uncommon Goods has built up by doing the right thing and not selling Junk.
              I will continue to browse the catalog and order, confident that what arrives is what I wanted and that the Postal Fairy has nothing but good things to say about UG.

                      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.
