At a time when people are craving connection and overseas holidays have been put on hold, Vini Divini Wine Lab is bringing people together to celebrate the simple pleasures, spark conversations and transport oneself to the sweet life – ‘la dolce vita’ – with the opening of this small Mediterranean wine bar.
Close relationships with friends and family, and the interactions one has in a community, are central to the Mediterranean lifestyle. At the heart of Vini Divini is a large central bar, reminiscent of a large kitchen bench in your home, where our owner, Philippe Gilbert, personally brings people together to laugh, pour wine, break bread and share stories or ideas.
“I wanted a wine storage solution that was innovative and design at the same time, the result is unique, it is a drawing customer inside from the streets” says Philippe Gilbert.
Living Edge was proud to provide a custom solution for wine storage, the Libreria del Vino that was perfectly matched for the client in a burnished steel finish, made entirely of laser-cut iron corten, acting as an impressive ceiling to floor backdrop, adding a warm ambience to the environment. Quality and craftsmanship are at the core of the Italian based Elite, To Be, which pays meticulous attention to fabrication and material.
In true Mediterranean style, Vini Divini is a family business. Philippe has brought his vision to life with the unwavering love, passion and of his wife, Hannah. "We are incredibly happy with the final result,” said Hannah, “It is the first thing people see from the street and they are drawn in for a closer look. It has become a real feature of our whole venue.
The Libreria del Vino allows you to equip walls of different sizes, from the hanging areas of kitchens to the walls of large wine bars, bars or restaurants. Entirely made of laser-cut iron, with cavities suitable for storing bottles of different sizes, ensuring proper conservation of the wine. The Libreria del Vino is available in a range of configurations and finishes.
