A Collection of Custom Wine Crates

Original wine crates are excellent as authentic, wine-themed interior decorations; but they (ironically) may not always be ideal for storing wines. This is especially the case when you try to place wines from Napa Valley inside of a Bordeaux crate.

Napa Valley makes wine bottles in different shapes and sizes, so they may not fit perfectly inside of a wine crate made for a specific shape and size. Unfortunately, a Napa bottle that is 1/4" of an inch larger than a Bordeaux bottle could prevent that Napa bottle from fitting inside of a Bordeaux wine crate.

It's because of this that we started making custom, personalized crates for our clients:

The above picture is a custom-made crate for Time Warner. The crate was then given to it's clients as part of a gift set.

We also are able to make standard wine crates as well. Below is a custom made 12 bottle crate made for Stonefire breads:

This is a very unique crate because it keeps the rustic charm of an original with the addition of brass handles on both short sides. The plan was to make a wine crate into a vintage bread box.

There are also different lid types that a wine crate can have. Below are some examples:

Standard (Lid sits atop the crate without being attached):

Slide-top (Lid slides out from one side):

Hinged (Lid flips upward and has latches on the back side):

Each style of lid is genuine to the way wineries make their crates, but the cusomization options don't end there..

We offer the highest level of quality and service available. The wood we work with is artisan-class, and it is a nearly perfect pine. We hand-pick our wood pieces, prepare the wood with two seperate applications of sanding and ensure that each of our pieces are durable enough to last for a lifetime.

We also offer a suite of creative services to deliver solutions. If you have a logo or design, send it to us via e-mail. We will take that logo/design and engrave it on the same wood we would use for your crate. Once the proof is done we will e-mail you a picture. Work begins only after your approval of the proof.

If you need help designing a logo, or aren't sure of the type or size you need, it's no problem. We will work with you from A-Z. We guarantee your satisfaction.
