About Us

In a very special niche market, it is our intent to become the leading provider of renovated decorative wine barrels.  We take pride in our workmanship and will provide the most unique reconditioned wine barrel in existence.  Paso Wine Barrels is dedicated to serving the needs of our customers each and every day.
Ron and Daryle Hier are the proprietors and along with Jo Hier, we have much experience in business including owning, operating and inventing unique automotive businesses that were cutting edge.  Speaking of cutting, we cut our teeth on a more artistic end of our automotive talents with one of the very few classic car restoration businesses in California that offered insurance estimates. 
That’s fine you say but how does automotive experience have anything to do with becoming re-creaters of old used wine vessels into the beautiful art that is a restored decorative wine barrel?  Well, along with our unusual craft in automotive repair, we also owned one of the largest pallet manufacturers in California and garnered an immense amount of knowledge about wood.  Shortly afterwards, we also owned and operated a large furniture manufacturer in Southern California and became intimately knowledgeable in what does and does not look good in the furniture business.  This comprehensive marriage of information helped us get where we are today.
As a result, our adaptability to an assortment of businesses became our strongest suit.  That gave us an all-around familiarity and awareness of what is needed to be successful, while offering a product that is unique yet attractive at the same time ... and something people really want. 
We started recreating these eye-catching pieces of art in 2009 but have just started offering our product to the public in 2013.  Add to that, the demand for planter barrels and there you have it - decorative wine barrels and planters.  Don't forget to check out our blog as the Paso Wine Barrel story continues … let our story become part of you. 
In Vino Veritas

Oh, and one other thing you should know about us.  Although we don't get there as often as we used to, we love Hawaii.
