Sustainability is the guiding force behind the new "Barrique" Accessory Line, with every product fashioned from artisanal oak barrels that stay true to the motto: love for nature, love for wine.

The history of our barrels – as well as our watches, jewelry and eye wear – starts with winemakers in France, who matured their world-famous spirits in Allier oak barrels over the span of several decades. Now, with their wine-ripening days behind them, these barrels have been given a second life as the innovative material behind Barrique’s upcycled wristwatches, jewelry, and eye wear.


Our unique process allows nature and wine-lovers alike to enjoy exquisite design,
while also contributing to a sustainable future. Our goal is to tell a story with every single timepiece and therefore each wooden watch is made from a unique Allier wine barrel. The special grain and individual character of our Oakwood, coupled with classically elegant design, further ensures that every item in the collection is unlike any other. Not only do our timepieces differ in wood composition, but they also include your choice of mother-of-pearl,jade, or slate dials.


We believe in the Latin proverb: “Nomen est omen” – the name is a sign. Our timepieces are named after beloved, traditional spirits, such as “Merlot” and “Riesling,” making them an ultimate gift for nature and wine-lovers.

The idea for the wine-barrel timepiece was birthed by Burgenland restaurateur and sommelier, Josef Schuch, who wanted to give his uncle an original gift. Schuch says: “My uncle is an exceptional wine-enthusiast, and that's how I came up with the idea to make a watch that embodied both his hobby and passion.” This vision spurred the Barrique Design Team and our new product development.


The collection now includes around twenty models of unique wine-barrel timepieces, with many more ideas in the making. Barrique design accessories provide you with a piece of nature, a slice of “dolce vita” in every item.
