What better way to showcase your collection than with the

thermo-pane reversible glass door but the slide out chrome
shelves, which make reaching for that bottle of wine just a

The Avanti unit is classically sleek and is slim enough to
fit into a narrow space and holds exactly a case of wine.

connoisseur, there are models like the Estate Masterpiece,
which holds 400 bottles and retails for $3,695.
