This "Wine Tasting Station" was once a wine barrel holding Newton Vineyard Red Wine. Now it has been given a second life, resurected by Claire Danthois and tasked to hold wine once again. Dainthois is known for her work reclaiming old timber planks and turning them into beautiful pieces of furniture.
“I am inspired by the stories that dwell within reclaimed materials and intrigued by the notion that I can recreate objects of value from items that have ‘lived another life.’"
She pulled together this 6ft tall bar using 122 pieces of oak to symbolize the 122 vinyard blocks at Newton Vineyard in St. Helena, CA. Five of these were made. One will stay on desplay at the vineyard, three will be sold to the public and one will be auctioned off for an estimated price of $20,000, which will be donated to Global Green.
