COASTERS - Ensemble - set of 4 + one XL for bottle
What better way to honor your wine than perching it on a piece of its own glorious history?
These wonderful coasters are handmade from one piece of ancient grapevine, cut sequentially to make a set. These vines were planted between 1907-1911 and were making wine during prohibition. The Italian family that was growing these had several hot rod cars used to elude the police and sold their "grape Juice" from San Diego to San Francisco. After prohibition, they started selling their excess grapes to other wine families who were just starting out, rescuing the wine industry and helping make it what it is today.
The grape vines are dried for up to 2 years to insure they are dry then kiln fired, hand cut, sanded and sealed with 3 coats of a clear UV sealer to highlight all the decades of growth and preserve your beautiful art for generations to come.
.Picture this in your kitchen or wine cellar. Big enough to make a statement, it's small enough to fit in any wine lovers home and makes a fabulous gift.

All our products are carefully handmade using 100% recycled materials. They are individually handcrafted, one of a kind creations, and not factory manufactured. It is therefore quite difficult to make identical items. Our attentive artisans make every effort to create only the best from materials with natural variations that should not be misconstrued as flaws. These make each piece of a handmade product charming and unique. The pictures may not be identical to the product you receive. It's probably even more awesome!
