Vintage Wine Rain Barrel

Originally used to age wine, our oak barrel finds new purpose as a receptacle to retain and utilize rainwater for your edible garden. Simply install the diversion hose kit from a standard home downspout to the oak barrel and begin collecting water with each new rainfall. A handy metal spigot near the bottom of each barrel allows for simple, controlled water removal. Elevating rain barrels will improve water pressure, so consider placement on cinder or landscaping blocks or on other flat surfaces. Conserves water by harvesting natural water runoff from rain. Rainwater is naturally soft and free of chlorine and other added chemicals. Easy to install and winterize in minutes. Water diverter reduces excessive overflows. Barrel cover keeps water free of contaminants. Weathered finish and signs of age add character-no two barrels are alike. Fits standard 2"x 3" and 3"x 4" downspouts. Sizes will vary slightly. 24"-26" diam., 36"-38" high; 90-100 lb. Made in USA. Kit includes: Recycled oak wine barrel. Flexifit(TM) hose diverter and 3' fill hose. Hole saw set and winter hole cover. Metal spigot/hose adaptor. Drain and cover. Water seals and screws. Complete instructions.

Looks Very Nice
May 5, 2013
It is a nice barrel. It was made in 2006, so I really would not describe it as "vintage". The supplied hose in the diverter kit is too short at 3 feet. I had to get a longer one at the harware store so I could place it away from the downspout. I put a coating of linseed oil on mine to protect it and bring out the wood's character. It is a nice piece and rain water collection is an environmentally sound practice. I bucket water my plants with it. Cover the overflow with screen to prevent mosquitoes.
