Provence Platters are the Rolls Royce of food presentation. Provence Platters are completely reconstructed from the ends of French oak wine barrels. After aging wine for four seasons in the Bordeaux or California wine country, we disassemble and completely rebuild our Provence Platters by hand in our workshop in upstate New York.
Provence Platters are planed and joined so that there is zero tolerance between the 8-9 staves that make up each platter. The staves are then held together with sophisticated Swiss woodworking connectors called "biscuits." This extra step eliminates cracks or serious warpage.
Each Provence Platter is then coated three times with food-safe beeswax to protect the wood. Provence Platters retain the original marks of their construction, including the popular "Francois Freres," "Seguin Moreau," and "Nadalie," plus numerous other marks.
Usually, the underside of the Provence Platter is still wine stained from its first four years of life
aging your favorite wine.
The iron handles are forged in our Brooklyn workshop, every step by hand the old-fashioned way, by heating the iron and hand bending it in a series of jigs.
Provence Platters are available in:
Small: 18” diameter
Medium: 20-22” diameter
Large: 23” diameter
