Our Designer and Engineers’ Expertise
Our wine accessory design begins in our Parisian creative studio where our designers and engineers collaborate to bring creativity and innovation to the table.
Each year, we aim to achieve the ideal combination of strength, comfort, and aesthetics in our wine preservation, serving, and tasting accessories, intended to be cherished for generations.
We allocate resources for R&D so that our creative team can meticulously evaluate each component. The most promising designs are then transformed into wine tool prototypes, designed to be visually and physically pleasing, as well as intuitive and effortless to use for an elegant wine experience.
Our Workshop in France and our Custom-Made Tools
To create our premium wine tools, we blend traditional and modern techniques to oversee the entire design and manufacturing process.
Many of our sets and products are handmade, assembled, or finished in our workshop in France, or in other workshops with an exceptional level of expertise.
The Uniqueness of our Custom-Made Industrial Moulds
For certain metal and composite components of our mass-produced models, we supply the factory with our own custom-made tools. These precise molds, designed to our specifications and owned by us, allow us to produce high-performing mechanisms with unique and exclusive shapes that distinguish them from others.
Our Master Craftsmen’s Ancestral Savoir-Faire
For custom wooden case designs, we collaborate with a few remaining “tabletiers” and their ancestral know-how. “Tabletterie” refers to the traditional art of handcrafting small wooden objects like travel chests, jewelry boxes, or checkers sets. L’Atelier du Vin is proud to continue this heritage by entrusting our French master craftsmen with the meticulous woodwork on many of our projects.
To maintain sustainability, our master “tabletiers” source wood from locally managed sustainable forests whenever possible. Each piece of wood is hand-selected and cut to size to preserve its original grain. With the utmost care and mastery, our craftsmen blend ancient assembly techniques with modern machining methods to create unique wine tool cases.
The Art of our Master Glassmakers
The traditional know-how of our master glassmakers in designing wine glassware is unparalleled. This art form, passed down from alchemists, has been preserved for centuries, from cathedral stained glass windows to tableware.
Our decanters, champagne flutes, and wine glasses are made of high-quality, lead-free (when possible) mouth-blown glass. Each handcrafted item is imbued with the personal touch, heart, and soul of our glassmakers, making all of our models one-of-a-kind.
Our Experts’ High Standards in Quality Control
Finally, L’Atelier du Vin conducts thorough quality control for each of our products and components at every stage of the manufacturing process. By utilizing the expertise of independent engineering experts, we can ensure the conformity and longevity of our high-end wine accessories before carefully packaging and shipping them to our customers.
