The wooden crate, typical of large estates
Originally, wine was sold in barrels. Wooden crate packaging appeared at the same time as the creation of the glass bottle, which had to be protected for transport. With time, crates were often replaced by cardboard. However, wooden boxes are still used to transport bottles, magnums, and other large volume containers. This is especially true for large estates which prefer the use of robust wood, to protect the wine inside. In addition to being used to organize your cellar, wooden boxes have now become a decorative element and a conversation piece. A wooden box can make a great kitchen shelf. Or, put several together to make a coffee table that offers insights on your select wine tastes.
Our bottles and cases on sale
Some bottles of Château Virant wine are sold in wooden cases to make transportation easier. After purchase, choose to place it in your cellar to age or open it and taste the wines inside immediately. It all depends on the aging potential of the wine and your personal taste preferences. The conservation of the wine in these boxes makes it possible to taste a vintage years later.
