We offers many types of antique tools used by coopers during the barrel making process.
We have several styles and types of instruments used in cellars to insert a cork into a bottle. Some of them use material like brass, wood, and iron.
Brass or wood valves, still used by elite wineries in Bordeaux and Napa, are inserted in the front of the barrel to draw clear wine during the ageing and maturation process.
We have an assortment of objects designed to care for the wine when a bottle is being poured such as silver plated funnels, bottle carriers, Champagne taps, etc.
We have an extensive collection of corkscrews from different centuries, countries, and material fabrication.
Contact us, send us pictures if you need help figuring out where your antique wine objects come from. We might be able to help you out with our knowledge and research capabilities.
Monique Davies, owner of Davies Winery, has chosen to decorate her beautiful new facility with our framed pieces. The winery, located in the heart of the Napa Valley, was largely built with repurposed materials and fits perfectly with the theme of our creations.
"Dominique has a great eye for fine antique wine objects. Alex shares this ability and adds a twenty year career as a winemaker to share this passion"

" Bouchonette is bringing a fresh perspective with their art displays hand made in our beautiful Napa Valley".
Monique Davies, Davies Winery.
Bouchonette is a family owned collaboration between Napa Valley Winemaker, Alex Réblé and his father, Dominique, a retired antiques dealer from Bordeaux, France. For over thirty years, Dominique has collected pieces from local chateaux, auction houses and antique dealers. Alex, in addition to his over twenty years of wine making experience, has hand selected each piece to display artistically. Each frame design is one of a kind, numbered, and hand crafted in the Napa Valley.
Alex and his wife, Catherine, have lived in the Napa Valley for over twenty years with their two daughters. Dominique's knowledge of antiques, Alex's wine knowledge and artistic eye, and Catherine's marketing skills are the heart of Bouchonette.
