INTEGRITY - We believe in saying what we do and doing what we say. It is the basis of excellence in our work. If we say we can build it, we can. If we are not sure, then we will let you know.
TRUSTWORTHY – We believe in the golden rule – do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We are honest and reliable and will do our very best to keep our promises to you.
STANDARDS - We hold ourselves and our customers to high standards of performance, ethics, and accountability. We don’t like
rush orders because they may not get done at our highest best. Give us the time to do it right the first time.
BELIEFS– If we are honest with our customers then they will trust us and be honest with us. Our integrity and trustworthiness are in fact the greatest things we have to offer you.
To sum it all up, word-of-mouth referrals and our reputation are our most effective advertising in this very competitive industry. So we put a lot of effort into being people of integrity. We value trust and honor more than we do the dollar, so we will do our best to conduct ourselves accordingly. In this respect, we are looking for customers with the same values - ones that we can trust. If this is you then we will enjoy working with you to create great things together and build a long-lasting relationship. And if we achieve this, then we hope you will spread the word and reward us with referral customers.
We are efficient. Timeliness is a high virtue. We endeavor to have an order ready on time or ahead of time. We deliver quality. We take care to do and create things right. We will educate. Our customers leave knowing more about barrels and the item they are purchasing. We have fun!
To re-purpose a beautiful and storied wine barrel artifact into a product that our customers can display proudly and to help save the planet a little by doing so.
Evans Family Barrels was Shawnn’s idea as a way to buy winemaking equipment and to keep his retired parents, Mike and Carole, busy. His wife Jenny, along with brother Joshua and sister Kim soon joined in helping where they could.
It was founded on the concept that oak wine barrels, much like ourselves, can experience a rich second life beyond retirement. We help the barrels make this “career change” by buying the barrels from wineries in Paso Robles and Napa/Sonoma and then reselling them as movie props or home or corporate décor. Some barrels are also redesigned into planters or furniture. Everything we do is handcrafted by us, right here at home. Mostly our work comes from custom orders, though we do produce a few things that intrigue us personally. If you can dream it, we can make it! Because every barrel has its own story, every item we make is an absolutely unique conversation piece.
