The genius wine archive. This is how Archivino is called by the founders of this company from Switzerland. It is a new storage system for wine bottles. Functional and with a beautiful contemporary design. Whether for storage in a wine cellar, presentation in a wine shop or in a gastronomic environment.
Albert Einstein once said: “Creativity is intelligence that makes fun”. Fun is also the feeling you get when you see Archivino. The system was conceived by Erwin Spengler from Uhwiesen in Switzerland. He was looking for a beautiful and functional solution for his own wine cellar and that is how the concept was born. The bottles are hung from the neck in holes in a wooden rack. The slightly tilted angle keeps the wine in contact with the cork. Possible sediment sinks to the lowest point in the bottle so that it is always ready to be poured out. Also small bottles, Champagne bottles as magnum bottles find their place in the rack.
The Archivino wine racks can be attached to the wall. Even more functional, and also more beautiful in a combination of multiple racks, is the modular system. A rail system developed for each type of floor ensures that each rack can be gently rolled back and forth. Since every space is different, this is custom made. A standard wine archive contains up to 180 bottles. Smaller demo racks are also available. Standard they are made of wood; oak, walnut or cherry wood. Veneer finishes are also possible. The wooden racks are moisture-resistant. Special solutions are available for cellars where the wine labels will naturally become mouldy due to moisture.
The design, development and implementation is carried out entirely by the Archivino team. They only use sustainable FSC-certified wood. The system not only saves space but also allows you to see each bottle individually. The design is striking and the modular system has many possibilities to create a unique wine place. Beautiful wines and beautiful design go hand in hand with Archivino.
