Display Your Cabernet

Beer may be the big advertiser on Super Bowl Sunday, but wine is becoming the drink of choice for many of today’s adults. According to Fox News, beer sales are down 20 percent over the last 20 years while wine sales are up.

 

From merlot to malbec, pinot grigio and pinot noir, a glass of wine elevates any event to an experience in taste and sophistication. In fact, one of the most common hostess gifts is a bottle of vino. So where do you store yours?

 

Don’t hide bottles in a kitchen cabinet. Instead, showcase your collection in a wine bar or sideboard. Take a look at these four toast-worthy options available at Art Van Furniture:

 

Sheridan Server Wine Rack

 

Our Sheridan Server, in a fitting rich merlot finish, is a great addition to a dining room or gathering space. Store four bottles in its open wine bays, and keep your collection of wine glasses inside the two cabinets. The open shelving gives you a chance to display your decorative glasses or accent pieces, and a drawer conveniently holds a corkscrew, wine charm assortment and cocktail napkins.

 

Keegan Server Wine Rack

 

The unique Keegan Server and Wine Rack will also hold your wine in style. With a beveled mirrored back and warm cherry brown finish, it adds sparkle and grace to your room. Five bottles of wine are held in its wine bays. Storage capabilities also include a total of five felt lined drawers, two cabinets and one display cabinet with an elegant glass door. The top features a starburst veneer pattern for a surprising detail.

 

Tocara Wine Bar

 

The serious wine consumer will love the Tocara Wine Bar Curio. Two full-length glass doors showcase a collection of wine, champagne and martini glasses on glass shelves. A felt-lined drawer easily holds your corkscrew, aerator and foil cutter. Set up a bar on the curio’s pullout work surface, and organize, store and display your wine collection in three pullout racks.

Finally, add a splash of color to your room with our Asian-Inspired Zhang Wine Cabinet. Part of our Urban AV Collection, the piece is constructed using traditional Chinese joinery. One of a kind, it’s hand-painted in aqua and hand-distressed. It holds glassware inside its deep doors and dozens of bottles inside its wine bays.
