Handrails - Retired Grapevine Handrails
We specialize in creating tables and other furniture out of 60-120 year old retired grape vines from California's premiere wine growing region, many of the vineyards these magnificent vines grew in are now either completely destroyed by wildfires, the extreme storms of the recent years, or simply no longer exist!
These retired grapevines have brought joy to generations of wine drinkers. Though their wine-making days are behind them, their distinctive character has been saved! Decades of careful cultivation combined with the vines natural tendency to create their own whimsical chaos yields striking compositions. With some careful shaping and finishing, each piece becomes a work of art suitable for warming the heart of a true wine lover.
Grape Vines are made to be handrails... with remarkable movement in each piece drawing the eye upwards. Notice the deep brown hues throughout the aged wood with all the striations of color created from drawing the rich nutrients from the soil.
Each piece is hand stripped and sanded silky smooth to highlight the texture and the naturally rich, dynamic colors of the vine wood. We currently offer these pieces Only in their Natural Color.
