The 8 Best Wooden Wine Box Pictures from Spain

Spanish wooden wine boxes are rare. Very few vineyards make them and the ones that do have either tiny productions or only make them for special vintages. They are one of my favorite regions for wine boxes.

Some have highly detailed pictures or designs. Others have a unique text/font and that's it. For some reason I find them captivating. Maybe it's the smooth Spanish wood or the architecture displayed on some of them. Perhaps it's just because there's so few of them which makes each one a treasure.

Spain as a wine making country is one of the few "hybrid" producers of both old and new world styles. This is seen clearly in their wine crates and boxes/ Some have that charming vintage look and some have a sleek modern appeal.

To be fair, alot of the crates displayed below only came in once so we have none in stock at the moment. I seem to have a penchant of creating blog posts of crates we aren't able to sell...

In any event I want to share these with you and hopefully one day we'll be able to supply you with some!

Prado Enea: Vintage class style large 12 bottle crate with an old world style lid and long side panel engraving 

Aalto: Modern style single bottle crate with a slide-top lid and two long side design engravings.

Numanthia: Hybrid style medium 6 bottle wine box with a highly detailed picture of the winery's old Spanish architecture

*Numanthia: The oak stain finish version of the Numanthia wine box

Termanthia: Modern style oversized medium 6 bottle wine box with a deeply engraved branding of the vineyard's design

Finca El Bosque: Hybrid medium oversized 6 bottle wine box with a delicate engraving of the logo and design

La Nieta: Modern style medium wine box with the winery's estate engraved on the lid, front and back sides

Bodegas Vega Sicilia: One of my all-time favorites. The Bodegas is lightly engraved with a very high detail picture of the vineyard estate on the front and back sides. The lid has an old world logo design. This is a hybrid 3 bottle wine case.

Remelluri: This is a very old world vineyard with a modern style design wooden wine box. Normally I'd call this a hybrid, but the Remelluri vineyard dates back to the 14th century so no dice on that. I love the elegantly designed picture of the vineyard and estate on the front and back sides. This is a medium 6 bottle wine box, and I've only seen two of these in my life.

If you have any questions about Spanish wine boxes or would like to get on our waiting list feel free to give me a call or shoot me an e-mail. Also, we get alot of e-mails from people looking to identify some of the crates they have. If you have a wine box or crate you'd like more info on i'd be happy to help with that.
