Choosing furniture constructed from recycled wine barrels offers several benefits over standard furniture. The most important aspect is the quality of the wood used to construct the pieces. The barrel makers are very selective when choosing the wood used for their wine barrels. Every consideration is taken to ensure the quality of the wine by carefully selecting quality wood. The wood selected to create the barrels are often French Oak, Hungarian Oak and American Oak. The wine makers take into account not only the trees growing conditions, but the shape of the tree. Winemakers also consider the tightness of the grain of wood to ensure that the barrel provides the best conditions to cultivate the wine. The selection process to create the wood barrels helps guarantee the quality of wood used to build the furniture.
The rustic Antigua Casa de Guardia was established in 1840 by Don José Guardia and is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year. The local name for the bar is "El Barril Místico", or "the Mystic Barrel" because there was a time when the wine was only for a select few because of its rarity.
