Rustic Used Puncheon 'Open Top' Wine Barrel Planters
Do you love wine? And everything made from wine barrels? Ever think of actually owning a wine barrel? Well, this is your chance. We have used wine barrels straight from the wineries just waiting for a good home. Barrels have many uses such as decorations, planters, tables and more. Planter barrels have the head removed so you can fill with soil and plant your bush or tree. These puncheons are listed as planters, so we'll take the head (top) off these. If you need the head on, please locate the puncheons under the Barrel tab.
UNIQUE: Puncheon barrels are unique in their size. They are big. Whereas normal wine barrel is 50-60 gallons, the puncheons we carry are around 105 to 130 gallons and more. They also weight twice as much as a 50 or 60 gallon barrel coming in at approximately 200 lbs. These barrels are very close to bar height and are big enough to be a hot tub or cold tub. As planters, they are also a good size for trees. Quantities are limited.
RECYCLED: These rustic wine barrels still have the barrel rack marks and wine stains proudly showing their years of winery service. All this adds a special touch for those who are sensitive to ecology and recycling.
HAND CRAFTED: While we don't make the barrel, it takes time to prepare your barrel per the selected options. Please allow us up to 1 week after payment to prepare your barrel for shipping or pickup.
OPTIONS: For a more refined look, we can sand and finish the barrel, even so, there will still be some remaining marks and stains. If you desire this, add sanding and medium walnut oil to finish the barrel. We also suggest if the barrel will be staying outside, purchase a bung to close the bung hole so that insects don’t take up residence in the barrel. Bungs can be purchased separately.

CUSTOMIZE: Call or email us if you want any cuts or to personalize the barrel. Cuts and personalization are extra.
Please note, our wine barrels are made from French or American oak. Each wine barrel will be unique in coloring, condition and size due to variations in production of wine barrels and wine. No two are alike. Even when we stain/oil them, no two wine barrels turn out identical. The barrel marks and wine stains make these barrels special. Whenever we work on these barrels, we can’t help thinking that every barrel has a story to tell!

Tip: to keep barrels tight, put a small amount of water in the barrel to keep the staves (wood) expanded. This will help keep the barrel tight. Email or call for other ways to maintain the barrel.
