Wine Barrels for Sale: Which Type Are You Looking For?
When deciding upon which wine barrels for sale you are interested in, you should know the reason why wine barrels are so special.
In wine history, the use of oak has been used in wine making for a thousand years. Over time winemakers realized that not only was oak a good way to store wine, oak also brought properties to the wine that were not present when wine was stored in any other way. Those properties are:-
- Oak makes wine softer. The porous nature of an oak barrel, allows evaporation and oxygenation to occur in wine, but not at levels that would cause spoilage. This process allows the wine to concentrate its flavor and aroma. The small amounts of oxygen that are allowed to pass through the barrel act as a softening agent upon the wines tannins.
- Oak improves the flavor of the wine. Phenols within the wood interact to produce vanilla type flavors that can give the impression of sweetness.
Whether you want a wine barrel for the home, a wine barrel for the garden or a wine barrel ornament just for show. You will not be disappointed with your choice. In this list of some of the best wine barrels, I have included what wine barrels are best for the home, which are better for the garden and which are better as decorative pieces. There are plenty of wine barrels for sale on this list so enjoy!

Wine Barrels For Sale As Stools
There are lots of different wine barrel stools to choose from for your home, but the one that gets my vote is a stool which is small enough for my feet to reach the floor. I absolutely loathe sitting on a high bar stool where my feet don't touch the floor. I end up swinging my legs backwards and forwards because there is nowhere to rest them.
I like to have a padded seat for extra comfort, because otherwise I find that the wood digs into my legs. I like the writing that is on the side of the wine barrel stool; it is very authentic and lets your imagination run riot with all the possibilities of travelling to vineyards, and sampling the wine as it is freshly drawn from the barrel.

When you are choosing a wine barrel planter for your garden, always choose one that appeals to you by the way it looks, after all, if you are opting for a wine barrel design, you obviously have something in mind for your garden. If it appeals to you with nothing in it, imagine how wonderful it will look with flowers, fruit or vegetables in it.
I like the multiple wine barrel planters because you have the best of both worlds, you can have flowers, fruit and vegetables all in the one wine barrel. Which is especially good if you are short of space?
Their natural wood appearance enhances the surrounding area you are going to put them in. I have put mine right next to the patio window, so that I can see it whether I am inside or outside. I have put flowers in all the levels in my planter because I just love the colors.

I absolutely love the thought that I can sit on a garden seat made out of a wine barrel. Maybe it's because I love wine so much! Maybe it's because wine barrels are made from wood, which seems so much more natural to have in the garden.
I can imagine sitting on my wine barrel garden seat, glass of wine in one hand,a bestselling book in the other. I prefer a chair to a stool, so a garden seat with a back would be a priority for me. I would want to relax back into it to read my book. Heaven.
I think having a seating area that is very pleasant is one of life's luxuries,life is so full on nowadays with different tasks pulling us all in different directions, if you work hard, you should be able to come home to your own sanctuary, you deserve it.
Wine Barrels For Sale As Water Storage Planters
Wine barrels for use as water storage seem to me to be one of the most attractive ways to store water. It seems more natural to me to have wine barrels made of wood in the garden as oppose to plastic water storage containers.
If we were all transported back to the caveman era, we would have to make our water storage containers out of the natural resources around us, trees would be the resource we would use to hold our water. I think this is why I am happier with a wooden storage unit instead ofa plastic one in my garden; it is because I know in real life that is what we would have had in the past. I am a sucker for history and all things natural, so the thought of a wooden wine barrel full of water really ticks all the boxes for me.
