Recycling old wine barrels into eco-friendly wine cellars
In California alone, 200,000 wine barrels are discarded or retired as they say each year. Imagine the amount of barrels that are being retired every year from the entire wine producing places around the world! It could be in millions! Some of them end up as planters or firewood but the majority end up in landfills. But Darryl Hogeback had something different in his mind. He is the founder of Savante Wine Cellars and he is passionate about using every part of the used barrel by recycling the wood into custom wine cellars. The Stave Oak Collection is handcrafted using mortise and tenon construction, meaning there is no use of nails, staples or screws. Well this only shows that there is no limit to recycling, if we put our mind to it.
