A highly anticipated follow up to the Robert Mondavi Private Selection collaboration — crafted sunglasses from recycled wine barrels — Woodzee introduces the new Whiskey Barrel collection. Constructed using whiskey barrels courtesy of Columbus Barrel Company, these frames fuse a rugged traditional look with a refined and classic shape. For whiskey connoisseurs, enthusiasts, and amateurs alike, these sunglasses boast exposed wood grain and a defined “whiskey” stain from inside the barrels, making a memorable statement.

  • Lens: CR-39 polarized blue/green mirror lenses providing 100% UV400 protection

To accommodate a vast consumer base and their diverse styles, four different frames are included in this collection: Sierra, Alpine, Dakota, and Trinity. Sierra, Woodzee’s best seller, offers a unisex design and universal fit; it’s a great staple. Adapting this wayfarer design, and scaling down key components, they created Alpine (shown above), perfect for smaller features and face shapes. For the guys, Dakota and Trinity are excellent choices as they’re bigger and boxier, Trinity being the more rectangular of the two. Whatever your preference, Woodzee has a variety of shapes, sizes, and wood types, providing you unique and specialized sunglasses.
