Small Business Saturday: DRT Woodworks

Great products for wine and beer enthusiasts.

I met Daniel Torres, the owner of Fresno’s DRT Woodworks at the ArtHop in October and just loved his unique take on a portable wine caddy. His designs use wood and rope and they have a nice rustic feel to their design.

Daniel started his woodworking business in July of 2017 after being inspired by California wine culture. He said it started as a personal project to properly transport wine but eventually developed into a business once others became interested in purchasing his designs.

He does custom orders of wine racks, wine caddys and beer caddys which are all hand made with pine and comes with or without stain per customers preference. 

(Note: the beer caddy had a bottle opener and a hidden magnet to catch your bottle caps!!)

Daniel is originally from Grand Terrace, CA and moved to Fresno in 2008 for school.  Being from the SoCal wine country he grew up learning about wine and has been involved ever since. He says he plans to give back some proceeds to the Sonoma County Wildfire disaster relief funds as it has greatly affected their wine commerce, as well as families and businesses in the region. He also plans to help the Fresno Community with local charity work in 2018.

“Ever since I was young, I wanted to start and run my own business, I also wanted that business to have purpose. I am a huge advocate for supporting small businesses everywhere and I am an even bigger advocate for that business to give back to the community where it resides. That is what I plan to do with DRT Woodworks; the idea of whenever you buy something from me, your dollar will stretch further and actually mean something to the community where it resides.”
