artisan Gifts

The Provence Platter is perfect for wine and cheese, grapes, fine meats and bread and makes an exquisite wedding or engagement gift. The Provence Platter begins as an oak in a French or American forest. Coopers hew the wood and stack it in the open air, continuously dampening and curing it for years before handcrafting the planks into oak wine casks. Wine typically ages in the barrel for four years, receiving the oak’s distinctive flavor. When the oak's flavor diminishes, the barrel heads are reclaimed, running the coopers's craft in reverse.
