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 (the curved planks that make up a barrel's sides) 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.

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.”

Great Centerpiece for Wine Lovers

I received this wine flight as a gift for Christmas and wasn't sure that I was going to use it. I love wine and we have lots of parties centered around wine so I had it sitting on my table and decided to make it a centerpiece. Every party we've had I have put flowers in it. In the summer it's great to cut flowers from my garden and put them in. See the attached pic.

We purchased this gift for friends who love wine and entertaining. They usually are a little hard-to-buy-for because they have a refined taste, but this was perfect. It is unique, classy, and a great gift. I highly recommend it.

Fantastic Gift for Wine Enthusiasts

Great product. I purchased this for a friend of mine who is a wine enthusiast. He was ultimately impressed by the fact that the back of the barrel still had wine stains from when the Bordeaux wine was originally inside. Great touch and instant backstory to the product.
