Wine Character Arc

Have you sampled a Shafer Relentless 2008? A 2010 Château de St.-Cosme Gigondas? A 2009 Shea Estate Pinot Noir? A 2010 Achával-Ferrer's Malbec?

Can't choose where to start? Why not try them all!

Flights have long been opportunities for sommeliers in training to sample the newest wines without falling prey to the drink's dizzying effects. With this elegant set, you can recreate this bar and restaurant trend in your own home. Appropriately, this gorgeous base is made from the stave of a retired French oak Bordeaux wine barrel and bears the beautiful effects of time and wine. These four mini carafes are perfect the size to share with a date or a good friend, and make for a fun night full of mouthwatering discoveries. Host blind taste tests, work on refining your palates, or simply rank your favorites and expand your wine knowledge. Base handmade by Bob Yates in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

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

      This is a beautiful and practical wine server and I'm very pleased with this item. My son makes his own wine and has wine tasting parties so friends can give their feedback on his creations. This wine server will be featured at their future parties to serve the choices with elegance and style.

        Really cool design - a piece of a wine barrel for the flight and 4 cute little wine glasses for tasting. Great for hostesses.

        Service and delivery comments:

        My first order arrived damaged and was meant to be a gift to be given in just a couple of short weeks. I contacted the customer service team and they took care of the issue immediately. Started the process to get me another, were completely attentive in getting it here in time for the event, and sent tracking information so I felt comfortable knowing it was on its way. They were excellent to deal with and I feel comfortable that if I ever have another issue with a shipment, it will be handled quickly and professionally. I will definitely shop Uncommon Goods again. Thank you.
