Q: What's an original wine crate, wine box and wine panel?

A: Original wine crates and wine boxes are made by wineries, and have been used to store and protect the winery's high-value bottles. The logo of the winery is engraved or embossed on them. Original wine crates can't be personalized.

Wine panels are the engraved or embossed side of the wine crate or box.

Q: What are original wooden wine crates and boxes used for?

A: Wine-themed home improvements and wine cellar decoration. Wine crates make excellent shelving units, benches and spice racks. Wine crates are sturdy and hold a great deal of weight.

Wine investors also purchase them to complete their collections. A complete collection yields a higher profit at private auction, and also looks great in their cellar.

Q: What are original wine panels used for?

A: Wine crate panels are great for wall, ceiling or floor coverings. They are mostly added to the walls of wine cellars, bathrooms and kitchens. They also make great table-top decorations and cabinet covers.

Q: What's a custom wine box or case?

A: Custom wine boxes, cases and panels are made just for you. Your logo, monogram or design is engraved on them. All of our personalized custom pieces are crafted in our Portchester NY workshop, and beautifully made by hand. Nothing is outsourced and we're not a factory. Our custom wine boxes and cases are built in the traditional way to last for generations.

Q: What wood type does Winepine craft with for personalized custom work?

A: Artisan-class pine wood that's been specially harvested for engraving. Our unfinished lumber comes from eco-friendly, sustainable and local land sources that are re-seeded once a tree has been cut down. This means that no forests experience stress as a result of the wood we use, and we have a never-ending supply in the years to come.
