Hi, I was looking for a mini wine barrel as a card box for my wedding. Is it possible for you, or me, to make a slot on the top to drop in the cards? And would the 1 liter be big enough?

Sheryl on May 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These are made of oak so it would be fairly easy to cut a hole in it for the cards, as to what size, either the 2 or 3 liter would be more appropriate. The 3 liter is 7 1/2" tall standing on end so go from there.

very stylish, spelling was wrong
We like the looks and it's prefect for what it is used for, but I was disappointed when I finally notice that the spelling was wrong on the front, by that time it was to late to do anything about it.
If you do buy this make sure right away that the spelling is what you ordered.

Very Disappointed
Very disappointed. I ordered 11/24 for Christmas. Original product was delivered promptly but product was defective. First replacement didn't show up after 2 weeks so I had to call back and remind them they were supposed to send it. Company ended up sending 2 different replacements but neither was good. Last one came on Christmas eve so I was forced to try to fix the defective product myself. I was very disappointed that I could not get the product I ordered a month in advance and paid $100+ for. Terrible product and service.

We're using the personalized barrel for decor at our wedding next year and I am so excited to display it! I've had it for less than 24 hours and have already received so many compliments!! I HIGHLY recommend this product and will continue to pass the word to anyone looking for a unique gift or unique decor. Thank you so much!!

Barrel leaked
Company replaced the leaking barrel quickly which was great. But spout broke when tapping it in the second barrel. They sent a new spout it also broke. Going to fabricate a different spout myself.

Horrible experience makes the product...
I ordered 2.5 weeks before Christmas and was promised that it would be there before the Holidays. 12 hours after ordering, I called to change the shipping address and was told it was already packed and ready therefore the address cannot be changed..just 12 hours after ordering! Then no one could tell me where in the process it was. I called 4-5 times in those 2 weeks and no one could give me a tracking number or shipping update. Finally I called December 23rd and was told that the third-party to makes the barrel is late with sending tracking numbers but it should be there Xmas eve. They said they would call me back that day I let me know the surprise: no call. The barrel came to the door at 12pm and I received an email status that my barrel came at 7pm...strange, I had it in my hands at 12:01pm. I then received a tracking and shipping email from wine enthusiast at 9pm that said "your package has been shipped"....well of course it had I already had it! Overall horrific experience and the people on the phone did not make it any better. I thought I would be buying another present for my dad on Christmas Eve! Horrific.
