At Vinostein’s factory in the Vaal Triangle, we carefully dismantle used wine barrels. The boards are treated with water and oils and carefully bent straight through a process developed by Vinostein’s engineers. The boards are then dried and used in the production of various designer furniture and décor items.
Vinostein is a young designer brand specialising in decorative wooden products and wooden furniture made from reclaimed wine barrel oak. Our finished products are completely unrecognisable from their original form – no bends, kinks or any of the physical characteristics of a barrel. Aging in oak barrels typically imparts desirable flavours to wine. After 3 to 5 years, wine barrels reach the end of their lifespan, which is where we come in. Through our proprietary fabrication process, we’re able to return the wood to its raw form, whilst revealing a dramatic combination of colour in the wood that’s unlike any other.
Vinostein’s passion for aesthetic design, as well as their love for wine, has led to this unique concept. As oak wood improved the wine, wine also improved the oak. Herein lies Vinostein’s secret.
