A wine barrel cooler is a wooden barrel that you fill with ice and place bottles of wines, champagne or other beverages to chill.
Barrel coolers are available in two forms: one is a traditional barrel with spring-hinged door on top.The other choice is more like a wooden tub with hinged top wooden lid. With its its 26 ” wide and 17 ” height this wine barrel cooler is a compact little piece of furniture that adds style to any party.
