Premier Wine Crates
Premier Wine Crates can be ordered with or without lids. Most of the time when the crates come in filled with bottles of wine, the lid is removed with a crowbar and the wine is quickly removed. The lid gets damaged and is discarded. This happens about 90% of the time. The other 10% of the time they’re kept in good shape. It’s our job to inspect and refurbish them so they look great for your decor, project or wine storage. Investors and wine collectors protect their most expensive bottles in them, so we need to make sure you get the best.
What Makes Premier Wine Crates Special:
- They’re from the best vineyards in the world
- Chosen from the best of the best
- Fully inspected and refurbished
- Each one is meticulously sanded by hand to a smooth texture
Premier wine crates come from Grand Cru or equivalent vineyards, and each one is designed to hold (12) 750 ML bottles. All are imported. Grand Cru Bordeaux wine is so valuable that it needs protection during it’s long sea voyage from the ports of Paris into the US. This is why wooden wine crates were invented by vineyards so long ago. To this day the original wooden wine crate remains the best and most elegant way to protect wine bottles.
Our selection process is simple yet effective. We check and re-check every crate for imperfections. The Premier selection only includes crates with imperfections that are typical to wine crates such as light scuffs or chips that add to the rustic charm.
Once the inspection process is complete we move onto the sanding process:
Wine crates are also excellent for advertising. They offer a nostalgic look into the old world, as many of these vineyards have been making wine on the same plot of land since the dawn of civilization. Wine crates are timeless and inspiring antiquities.
