About this project

Why Green Barrel?

  • Luxury boutique wine on tap 
  • Low-impact, local and sustainable 
  • Convenient 
  • Better value
What are we trying to do?

Bring the winery experience home! Green Barrel currently offers local wine on tap for events in the Bay Area. Green Barrel has been challenging the market to change the way local, high-end wine reaches your glass.   After many requests we are launching our Green Barrel home product. But we need your help! We need to have at least 40 barrel pledges to fund manufacturing a batch of 5 Gallon countertop Green Barrels.

Our stylish counter-top Green Barrel is perfect for weddings, conferences, corporate event, local events and now your home!  Check out our FB page for upcoming events and photos or our website.  

What's in it for you?

Be one of the first to have a Green Barrel dispenser. After you receive your barrel you can enjoy eco-friendly, local boutique wine on tap anywhere. We work directly with local California wineries to avoid expensive and cumbersome packaging, reduce costs, and lower the environmental impact of luxury wine. Our Barrel Club will be conveniently delivered to your door and you can enjoy boutique wine at home. Our barrel system is unique and easy to use. Visit our website for more details.

The Green Barrel 

We have spent many hours designing, building and refining our barrel dispensing system and have successfully made it small enough for any counter-top. The home barrel is 19 inches tall with our stand and 19" in depth. It looks great on the kitchen counter, table, or out on the patio! Refilling the barrel is easily done in less than two minutes by opening the face and replacing the EcoPack. If our project succeeds we will be able to run a batch of 40+ barrels to support our home market.   

Beyond the Barrel

Green Barrel is not just a beautiful conversation piece - it is an innovative and stylish wine dispenser.  Order our barrel and you have the opportunity to order Green Barrel wine.

We package the wine in our 3 Litre EcoPacks and pass the savings (environmental and financial) on to you. Once opened, our EcoPacks keep wine fresh for approximately 4 weeks.

The Environment

Green Barrel offers quality wine for less impact. Our EcoPack offers 85% less landfill waste than traditional glass packaging and a 55% less carbon emissions when shipping.  

Most wine is consumed within a week of purchase--why bottle? Even when recycled, most glass (65%) becomes landfill. <http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/nonhaz/municipal/index.htm>.  

Our EcoPack is the lightest wine packaging available on the market!
