Personalized Wine Barrel

Perfect for a couple of sommeliers, this petite barrel imparts the wine inside with a mellow, oaky flavor.

$30.00 - 175.00

Hit The Right Notes

More than just a handsome homage to a couple of wine lovers, this miniature oak barrel ages vino to peak flavor, just like its full-sized siblings found in professional wineries. Its petite proportions accelerate the aging process, meaning that the recipient's choice of vintage will be infused with the barrel's American white oak flavor up to ten times faster. Turn the barrel and taste the contents weekly, and when they reach their ideal oakiness, the amateur vintners can enjoy a glass straight from the tap. Handmade by coopers in Manassas, Virginia. Ages 21+.

I bought this gift as a valentines day/ congratulations on your new apartment for my boyfriend. He loved it and thought it was very cool. Whenever we go to someone's house or a restaurant with a custom bar he always makes a comment, so I figured this would be a great gift to start his own collection of novelty things for his own home bar. I also had it customized and they made it look beautiful and fancy making it look like it came from an actual vineyard. I would definitely recommend this product especially for women that are struggling to find a great gift for their man. Uncommon goods is a great website!

The good, the bad and the ugly...

The barrel itself is great looking and solidly built. You have to insert the valve using a mallet, then fill it with water to allow it to seal for 3-5 days. Read complete review

The barrel itself is great looking and solidly built. You have to insert the valve using a mallet, then fill it with water to allow it to seal for 3-5 days.

Once that process was done we filled the barrel with wine. The "oak" flavor infusion was intense and almost immediate. We love oaky wine, but after only one day, our wine tasted like scotch the flavor was so intense. After a few days though it seemed to calm down a bit and the wine was surprisingly drinkable - although the 'nose' could still blow you back a bit.

After about a week the spigot handle kind of lost its grip and wine started slowly leaking / dripping out. We had to turn the barrel on end to stop the dripping - and have not filled it with wine again.

Wine also kind of bled through some of the seams in the barrel lid, making it look kind of dirty.

The custom text was not exactly as expected- we added the word "GROVES" after our names thinking it would replace the word CELLARS on the barrel. Instead, what we ended up with our names followed by " GROVES CELLARS" which doesn't make much sense.

    The design is absolutely beautiful. I love the fact that it is fully functional for wine making. I would love to purchase one for myself in the future. It's a rustic, beautiful, decorative, and functional little wine cask that our wine connoisseur coworker loves! It was a great going away present.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Wine Barrel:

    The first barrel arrived in good condition, but the personalization was done with what it seems a wood burning kit and it's very pale. It was an anniversary gift, so I was disappointed about the quality of the customization. I ordered the smaller one for a friend, hoping it would be better. It arrived chipped in two joint areas. The personalization was very nice. It's carved not burned into it. CommonGoods is working to resolve the problem with the small one, but hasn't replied about the subpar customization for the bigger more expensive one.

        Bought the whiskey barrel for my husband and loved it, so I bought the wine barrel for my in-laws. Unfortunatell when my in-laws put water in it the black bands holding the slats seemed to bleed. Unfortunately this ruins the look so they can't keep it on display.

        The makers of this barrel stand behind their product. Our first barrel leaked and they sent a new barrel. This one does not leak. Thank you. Everyone who sees this barrel wants one. I will be ordering more. A great anniversary gift.
