Bernard's Barrels

Unique furniture - handcrafted from wine barrels

How it all began....

Hello, my name is Bernard and I live in Yate near Bristol. 

All my life I loved DIY. To make unique furniture and gifts from wine barrels - this idea I had already in France in my head. But it took so many years to finally live my dream.

In November 2013 I took the plunge and started my own business. I begun with a little workshop in the garage of a friend, and designed my first furniture from used French wine barrels.

But because I needed more space and publicity to display my products, I quickly moved to a good location next to the train station in Yate and opened my shop and workshop in April 2014.

Celebrating my "4. birthday" in 2017 is something special. A big thanks to all my customers who have supported me over the last years! And there a still lots of ideas which I will need to bring to life. 

If you would like to learn more about me and my products, you are very welcome to visit my shop/workshop or come to one of the numerous markets in the area where I will be exhibiting.

Hope to meet you soon, Bernard
