The Educated Use of Wood

No matter which hemisphere of the wine world you might find yourself in, this is perhaps the single most
inflammatory topic. Perplexingly complex, wood has sparked many fierce ‘them and us’ debates between traditionalists and innovators that still wrangle on to this very day.


Well, you see the educated use of wood has the power to transport us from banality and boredom into an ethereal, otherworldly dimension. Species, size, age and grain all influence the transformation of even the most hardened and austere elements into sophisticated treasures of elegance and charm.

WINTERGATAN’s Marble Machine is lovingly sculpted from PLY, proving that it shouldn’t always be a question of what wood you use, BUT RATHER HOW YOU USE IT !
