Do you live and breath wine, or at least really like it? Do you want to take your wine love to the next level? A new VRBO listing has just what you’re looking for: a room inside of a giant wine barrel. If you’re touring the wine country of Washington state, it’s only fitting that you can get a good night’s sleep inside a wine barrel. After all, there’s no better way to appreciate wine’s aging process than sleeping (aging?) in a large, wooden barrel.
There are many distinctive spots to stay while on a beer or wine vacation. VinePair has reported on unique, alcohol related habitations before, like in Ireland, where you can rent an entire pub equipped with a living room, two bedrooms, and, of course, a full bar. If you’re an oenophile and want to splurge, you can Airbnb a castle in the Loire Valley, a vineyard in Burgundy, or even a watchtower in Tuscany.
The barrel VRBO is on a whole other level. Fortunately, the 1,000 gallon barrel is equipped with modern luxuries like heating and air conditioning so you won’t have to worry about being too hot or too cold. The barrel actually functions as an add on to a larger house that can accommodate up to four people. If you need to get away from an irritating friend or relative for a minute, just sneak off into the wine barrel for a little solitude. You might find that you’re happier in the barrel than at home.
