where to get used wine barrels for cheap ?

my uncle would like to get some used wine barrels for around 20 dollars but online they are around 120- 200 bucks for just one used barrel. i don't even think its possible to get them as cheap as 20 bucks.

    I've called around to wineries to get mine. Many of them are willing to sell you their old barrels. I've gotten them for between $20-$50/barrel. Good luck!

    They have a handful of cheap wine barrels from http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_2?rh=n%3A1055398...

    I think there were some for under $60 which I think is pretty cheap. It also depends on the size of the barrel that you want as well. You can also try calling a local winery place and see if they have any lying around that they no longer use and see how much they are willing to sell it for. I think I would just think with online options.

    Well, you're quite right. It's difficult to find $20 barrels nowadays because even used ones sell between $100 and $250 per unit. If you are willing to get it the hard way, you may ask old wineries who sell wine on line for their culled units - some of them might be willing to sell you a few. You may also visit ebay or amazon once in a while. There, you can get what you're looking with a stroke of luck.

    If you can't find them, you may just choose to buy cheap, fine wine online. It's a bit easier and more flexible. You can find some at http://www.winemarket.com.au/

    If he's looking to make wine in them, he'll never get them for $20. If he wants them for decoration, he could try asking local wineries for their old and unusable barrels.

    I found a few good wine barrels for under $50 at: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_2?rh=n%3A1055398...

    Depending on the size that you want, price will vary. Another option is to call a local winery and ask if they have any used one that don't use anymore and see if you can buy it from them.
