PRODUCTION & DESIGN
Present your best reserve for everyone to marvel with this elegant, wooden wine holder. Its shape of a crescent moon allows the holder to free stand, with or without a bottle. Place it on your kitchen surface or in your dining room for optimum attention grabbing. The finely carved wood is finished and sealed with a natural, non-toxic oil that gives it a beautifully rich shine. Smooth to the touch and easy on the eye, this is a must have for your best grape.
Our lumber is sourced from the high-quality timber yards and sawmills of nearby Chimaltenango, with a variety of grains and colors to suit all tastes. All of our timbers undergo a careful kiln drying method to carefully lessen the moisture content, leaving just enough so that it can suitably adapt to the relative humidity in your home.
The history of the wine bottle is worth enjoying with your favorite glass of claret and a comfy armchair. Glass has been around a long time, and the first glass as we know it today was made in what is now Northern Syria, over 5000 years ago. The ancient Romans, as was the trend, were experts at glass-making, both for aesthetic and industrial use. It was the Romans that introduced the glassblowing technique, which, in turn, led to the art of making wine bottles.
Storing wine in glass made in the Roman times was not common since it was too fragile for travel. Instead, wine was usually stored in clay pots called amphorae. For fancy occasions, however, wine would be poured into glass bottles for bragging rights, and if they were shipped in glass then they would be packed tightly in dried grass.
With the advent of the coal-burning furnace in the 17th century, high temperatures were easily attainable that allowed for darker, much thicker glass that was impossible to manufacture previously. Once corks had been invented, the transportation of wine soared. The only part left to standardize was the amount of wine in a bottle. Before, the sizes and colors of the wine bottle varied depending on the manufacturer's tastes, but in 1979, the US set the standard size for a glass wine bottle at 750ml. To allow for easy trade relationships, the European Union promptly took on the same standard.
