Wooden wine crates are the classic transport and storage crates for wine bottles. They generally consist of several boards connected to one another by nails. Some winemakers also apply branded lettering or the emblem of the vineyard onto their crates. Because plastic crates have also been introduced into winery enterprises, wood is no longer used as intensively as before for the production of wine crates. Since many people value the nostalgic character of these crates, used or even antique models enjoy high popularity. For example, they are used to construct simple living room shelves, tables or other objects.
