A wine cellar for a single bottle


A single bottle AngelShare wine cellar looks like the perfect accessory to showcase the wine collection throughout the living space. This "cellar" is one of three designed by Michio Akita to bring high quality wine storage to the Japanese apartment market. Not every homeowner has the space for a full size walk-in wine cellar, and not everyone wants to keep a large amount of money tied-up laddering the nicest cases of Barolo and Cabernet.

Wine storage only requires a few things to be perfectly serviceable: a humid room with a stable temperature, and no light. The glass storage chamber is smoked to keep light to a minimum and treated so that the viewing window will keep out the ultraviolet light that can change the flavors. Humidity floats right around the 65% point to protect the cork from drying out and spoiling the wine.

The AngelShare uses an electric Peltier cooler to regulate the temperature inside the storage chamber at three temperature levels (12℃, 14℃ or 16℃), and is set up in such a way that the Peltier can also be a heating element if the surrounding room temperature drops too low. There's a small fan to exhaust heat created by the Peltier, but operation is barely above the sound of leaves rustling at 15dB.

Available at $374.14 from Compact Impact
