Like capturing rain water but want something nicer than plastic? We have used wine barrels straight from the wineries that make great rain barrels. Standalone rain barrels can hold about 59 gallons of rain water. Later, use the water to water plants. All rain barrels come with a silicon bung to secure the bung hole.
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.
UNIQUE: The rain barrel is a whole wine barrel. All are 1“ solid white oak. We fill the barrel up to make sure it’s watertight. This can take hours to days. The drainpipe hole is reinforced and covered with mosquito and critter screen. We also attach an oak frame over the screen edges and make a cover for the drainpipe hole. We add overflow and hose spigots so you can use the water inside to water the garden. For a finished look, we add a Danish oil with a medium walnut stain. We find that each barrel takes the stain and oil in its own way along with their markings being slightly different, hence no rainbarrels will be the same. See options below for a more bare bones model.
Each wine barrel holds about 59 gallons of water. With a good rain, they fill up quickly. For those that want more storage space, see our chained rain barrels where you can chain 2 or more barrels together.

Please note that although the same care and quality is put into all of our products, there will be natural variation due to the wood selection (either French or American white oak), wood figure, winery or cooperage markings, wine stains from the inside of the barrel, and other factors. No two pieces will be identical and each has its own 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.
