19th Century French Oak Carpenter Press Table with Four-Bottle Storage Rack
This antique table was crafted in the Poitou region of France, circa 1880. The rustic, oak piece decorated with the word “Bordeaux” across the front, has a very thick top and features two rows underneath specifically for storage up to eight wine bottles total. This sturdy, rustic Provincial table is in excellent condition with a rich patina, and would make a great addition to a kitchen, wine cellar and all entertainment purposes. Antique wrought iron plank holder tool included. The wine regions of Bordeaux are a large number of wine growing areas, differing widely in size and sometimes overlapping, which lie within the overarching wine region of Bordeaux, centered on the city of Bordeaux and covering the whole area of the Gironde department of Aquitaine. The Bordeaux region is naturally divided by the Gironde Estuary into a Left Bank area which includes the Médoc and Graves and a Right Bank area which includes the Libournais, Bourg and Blaye. The Médoc is itself divided into Haut-Médoc (the upstream or southern portion) and Bas-Médoc (the downstream or northern portion, often referred to simply as “Médoc”). There are various sub-regions within the Haut-Médoc, including St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St.-Julien and Margaux and the less well known areas of AOC Moulis and Listrac. Graves includes the sub-regions of Pessac-Léognan and Sauternes (among others), and Sauternes in turn includes the sub-region of Barsac. The Libournais includes the sub-regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol (among others). Measures: 39.5″ W x 14.5″ D x 31.5″ H.
