Rain Barrel (59 gallons)                                 
Buy direct for $225 plus tax

These are by far our top seller. Our rain barrels are made from one of our premium wine barrels. They come fully assembled with a brass spigot at the bottom and two overflow fittings at the top, all of which fit any standard garden hose. 

They also come with a custom downspout connector that fits both 2"x3" and 3"x4" downspouts. The connector is equipt with two screens to ensure debri stays out of your barrel and  bugs stay in! Measurements are the same as the wine barrels below.

Red Wine Barrel (59 gallons)                        
Buy direct for $150 plus tax

These are neutral red wine barrels and are great for home woodworking project and for brewing. We sell only premium wine barrels. This means they are in superb condition and come straight from the wineries. They will never be dry or moldy, like many of the other inferior wine and whiskey barrels around (don't even waste your time with whiskey barrels, they are junk!).

Each barrel is unique with it's own character and wine staining. They measure 34-37" tall and 26-29" wide. The tops are 22"-24" in diameter. They weigh about 120lbs.
Our used wine barrels are great for homebrewing/beer making
Half-Barrel Planter                                          
Buy Direct for $75 plus tax

Our planters are made only from premium barrels. The barrels are cut in half and the edges are smoothed with a router. They have holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. (plants and dirt not included...)

You may have seen wine or whiskey barrel planters at your local garden store. They are usually old and dried out so you can feel the planter move as you pick it up. Ours are nothing like that! By using only premium barrels we ensure strong, sturdy, and beautiful planters that can last for decades! Our planters are about 18" tall and 26.5" wide.
