What does a wine barrel weigh? 2017-06-12T13:08:37+00:00

The average 225 litre wine barrel weighs between 40kgs to 55kgs depending on the thickness of the stave and also the hydration of the wood.

What is the width of the wine barrel? 2017-06-12T13:08:34+00:00

The width of the barrel at the girth (widest point) is around 700mm and the width at the head (narrowest point) is around 540mm.

Does the wine barrel have a lid? 2017-06-12T13:08:30+00:00

No. The wine barrel is essentially one solid structure with no moving parts.

Do you deliver to Yanchep, Sawyers Valley, Mundaring, Harvey and Collie? 2017-06-12T13:08:26+00:00

Yes, we deliver to most places.

What kind of wood is the barrel made from? 2017-06-12T13:08:22+00:00

Around 98% of the barrels we sell are made from French Oak. Occasionally, we do get barrels that are made from Croation, American or Hungarian oak, however these are uncommon.

Do you sell smaller sized barrels such as 10L, 20L etc? 2017-06-12T13:08:18+00:00

No, but we can supply a 57 litre barrel.

Are your wine barrels ‘real’ wine barrels that have actually been used to make wine? 2017-06-12T13:08:14+00:00

Yes! All of our barrels are sourced from premium West Australian Wineries and have all been used to make wine.

What time do you usually deliver? 2017-06-12T13:08:08+00:00

Typically, we do two delivery runs per week. We try to deliver between 6pm and 9pm in the evening as this is generally when people are home.

I have some stairs at my house, are you able to get the barrel up the stairs? 2017-06-12T13:08:03+00:00

Yes, when I deliver the barrel I’ll move it to exactly where you want it.

I would like a barrel for my wine cellar but the cellar has a really narrow entrance and I’m not sure if the barrel will fit through. 2017-06-12T13:08:00+00:00

We’ve delivered many barrels to wine cellars with exceedingly narrow entrances and are yet to encounter a wine cellar where we were unable to get the barrel inside. If the barrel doesn’t fit then a full reimbursement will be given.

How high is a barrel? 2017-06-12T13:07:57+00:00

It’s about 960mm high, almost as high as a kitchen counter.

How high is a half barrel? 2017-06-12T13:07:53+00:00

Depending on the barrel used, usually between 450mm to 480mm.

Do I need to line the half barrel with plastic? 2017-06-12T13:07:50+00:00

The best way to look after a half barrel is to oil it a great deal. We recommend two or three applications with Danish Oil, Linseed Oil, or if you’re really keen then mix linseed oil with mineral turpentine at a ratio of 50/50. This will lower the viscosity of the linseed oil and allow the oil to further penetrate the wood. As far a lining with plastic is concerned, this prevents the French oak from absorbing moisture and will lead to dehydration of the wood and subsequent delamination of the barrel.

Can I book a barrel now to be delivered in a month or two? 2017-06-12T13:07:46+00:00

Yes. If you would like to secure a particular barrel for someone’s birthday etc. then if you pay a small deposit, we’ll be happy to keep the barrel aside for you.

How do we pay when you deliver the barrel? 2017-06-12T13:07:43+00:00

You may pay in cash, cheque or using EFTPOS. Portable EFTPOS is available at all times.
