The trend of floating home elements is dominating contemporary design, with everything from floating vanities to floating homes, and now floating wine collections.

World leading custom wine cellar design and build firm, Genuwine Cellars, has created a new and unique wine storage system meant to showcase wine bottles like never before.

“Home owners today are more educated and appreciate high-quality materials and unique design elements,” says Genuwine CEO Robb Denomme. Genuwine’s new Cable Wine Racking Systems appear to “suspend bottles in mid-air using aircraft-grade steel cable that affixes floor-to-ceiling. When mounted in a glass-enclosed wine cellar, the effect is stunning.”

These near-invisible systems are in line with contemporary design trends and have been popular in show homes and restaurants, used in feature wine walls and even as glass-enclosed room dividers. These new Cable Wine Racking Systems epitomize the movement towards ultra-modern wine cellar design, and have become showpieces in many projects from California to Florida.

The most coveted of these systems to date is called the Ring System. It holds bottles between two floating rings – one smaller ring to support the neck, and a larger ring to support the body. The rings are stayed by tension cables that can reach up to 25ft high.

Made to order at Genuwine Cellars’ Canadian manufacturing facility, the custom Cable Wine Racking System is constructed with steel air-craft cable, metal bottle holders, and brushed-aluminum tension set mounts. To ensure the innovative racking complements its space, the directionality and number of bottles per column can also be customized.
