MEET OUR FOUNDER

The Wilhelmsen Barrel Cradle was created by Dennis Wilhelmsen; welder, innovator and artist.
Dennis’ father (a blacksmith in his homeland of Germany, who learned this art from his father, a Master Blacksmith) and mother moved to the United States to build a life full of opportunity. ¬†Landing in Northern California, they raised a family while building a successful a metal fabrication business.
As a teen, Dennis worked side-by-side with his father learning the skills of the trade. Quality, care and precision were instilled in each piece.
Dennis continues to challenge himself to engineer solutions for complex problems. These skills have been practiced, refined and perfected over the course of his 35 year career.

We are raising the bar for storing wine and spirit barrels.
