About Us

Wine Country Creations is Central Otago’s home of recycled wine barrel platters.  We established in 2010 after purchasing 500 wine barrels and decided to turn them into ‘perfectly imperfect’ wine barrel platters and planters for the local market trade.
From there word of mouth grew our business into a range of artisan wine barrel products which people love for themselves or to give as gifts.

We are lucky to be located in beautiful Wanaka, Central Otago, New Zealand and all our creations are hand made in our home based workshop.  

We are enjoy making a local product that people love to buy for themselves or as gifts for others.
Our products have made their way into people’s hearts, homes and restaurants around New Zealand and the world. We get lots of compliments!

We are passionate about our products because they are all “perfectly imperfect” locally sourced, re-used and recycled with a boutique Central Otago influence. We hope you love our range of products, accompanied as always by good food, good wine, friends and family.

Please feel free to call or email us personally with any enquiries.  021-790 395 or

About Our Products

Because our products are “Perfectly Imperfect” they are all designed and handmade by us, not one item is the same as the other, each product has it’s own little characteristics, whether it be from the cooper brand or the wine maker markings.

There will be varied shades of wine stains and rustic imperfections in the oak, caused through the wine making process. We mostly source our oak wine barrels from local Central Otago wineries. These barrels have had Central Otago Pinot Noir made and stored in them, the gorgeous red wine can be clearly seen in various shades infused into the oak staves.

We specialise in wine barrel platters and candelabra but sometimes create planters and firewood barrels too when  supply allows. All products are tagged with our Registered Trade Mark Central Otago Antique Tag that complements the products and reinforces the Central Otago province and our handcrafted passion.
