Default Wine Barrels

How much do most vineyards sell their used wine barrels for? I am planning on calling some of the local vineyards close by to see if i can get a hold of one. I just want to know a ball park figure of what everyone has paid for theirs. Cheers!

Paul

If you ask nicely, maybe $0.00. or a couple of bottles of the brew.
That's how I got mine.

I've been contacting local wineries lately and so far I've gotten quotes for $100 and $150.

Most common I've heard is in the 75-100 dollar range. If you don't buy them they just chop them in half for planters which sell for about 40 each I think.

I would Kilted's suggestion and contact them and explain the situation, that way maybe they can arrange to give you one right after they drain it. Maybe even at a discount.

Totally off topic, but SWMBO and I were at HD a few weeks ago looking at planters. We saw the barrels and they were listed as bourbon barrels. I was curious if they were really, so I went to check them out, put my head down in it, took a deep breath in...yep, they were bourbon barrels alright!

That's interesting Chester. If I'm reading that site correctly the barrel itself is not Oak, just the staves themselves? What is the barrel made of? What was it used for prior? More importantly, where'd ya get it!?!?!

The barrel is an american oak barrel from Seguin Moreau. It has dates of 8-03 and 8-05 burned into the head from innerstave. they just remove the head and put in new toasted oak ribs in the inside held in place by a plastic rod. It gives that new barrel taste to old barrels without all the scraping.

I had never heard of this till today. I was peering into the barrel and saw a hose clamp and one of the plastic rods. I went "great, what is this in my barrel?" but you can see it what it is in the picture on this page Innerstave Products -Barrel Innerstave that is looking into a barrel with the head off.

the barrel smells pretty good. It has had malbec and merlot in it by the chalk markings.

As far as where I got it, my parents own a winery

Very nice and always helps. I work for a winery, but we don't use oak at all. All SS. Had to outsource the barrel I got!

I would say avoid the innerstave barrels. Its gonna be impossible to clean, especially with fruit in it... anybody ever pull the head off one of these guys?
