Owner of Vin de Garde Modern Wine Cellar Designs 

specialize in modern wine cellar design, construction and maintaining fine wine collections.

I focus on proper wine storage - by applying my education and experience in construction, wine and detailed, Industrial Design. I use science and technology to create an artificial environment to match the natural wine environment for long term cellar aging.

I have a number of Industrial Design Patents Pending and Patents Pending on ALL of my unique modern wine storage designs, including new and improved designs for our Wine Wall (TM) Series, Nek-Rite (TM) Series, Beta Bloc (TM) Series and XY (TM) Series - all developed to be simple and stylish design.
