Vin de Garde Cellar System: Modern Wine Storage

ICFF 2011

Over the years we've profiled a number of wine storage solutions. Vin de Garde Cellar Systems, which I saw at ICFF this year, is a solution, created by design and wine enthusiast Billy Carpenter, which I loved not only for its simplicity but for its sculptural and beautiful design.

While Vin de Garde can also fabricate a traditional wine cellar, their modern cellar, based on a simple peg and board concept, is novel idea in wine storage. The aluminum rods can be placed in neat orderly rows to hold the wine bottles with their necks out or the rows of rods can be staggered to hold the wine bottles parallel to the wall. Chose square wooden dowels to hold the wine neck out if you prefer a more natural look. The panels can be ordered in wood, stainless, white, black or custom colored to match your walls.

When not used for storing wine, we can see using the rods as hooks to hold reusable shopping bags, aprons, dishtowels and, even large bowled or large footed wineglasses.
