According to separate reports, Canadians are living in smaller spaces and also consuming more wine. Coincidence? In any case, where to store all those bottles?
One contemporary option is the Millesime wine-rack system; its wood and metal framework runs floor to ceiling, providing vertical storage that's both functional and distinctly stylish.
Made in Montreal, the racks come in a variety of colours and finishes and are designed to adapt to most room configurations. Two interchangeable shelves – one horizontal, the other an angled display shelf – ensure that wine labels, a point of pride for serious collectors, are on show.
They're available at 12° en Cave in Montreal, Papro Consulting Wine Cellars & Consulting in Toronto, Evolution Wine Rooms in Winnipeg and Wine Vault Inc. in Vancouver. For more information, visit www.millesimewineracks.com.
