Pek Preservation Systems Unveils Single-Bottle "Wine Cabinet"

Pek Preservation Systems, Inc., based in Windsor, CA, U.S., has unveiled a small appliance that is said to preserve wine and manage serving temperature for single bottles of wine. The product will be publicly presented at the upcoming International Home & Housewares Show, to be held in Chicago, IL, U.S. on March 20-22.

According to the company, the Pek Wine Steward(TM) was designed to fill the market void between low-end accessories with limited preservation effectiveness (and without serving temperature management) and high-end professional wine cabinet equipment costing thousands of dollars. The company contends that wine cabinets take up several feet of space -- impractical for the home gourmet kitchen or bar. Using the Wine Steward, Pek says consumers can now affordably open and serve one or more bottles of wine, served at the ideal serving temperature.

"Preservation and temperature serving management are critical to enjoying a bottle of wine over an extended period of time," said Gregory Luzaich, CEO. "The Pek Wine Steward addresses these concerns in a technically superior and artfully designed solution."

Ted Bryant, vice president of Design and Engineering, added, "In designing this product, we bring together for the first time the best of advanced wine science, gourmet housewares aesthetics and engineering innovation."

The appliance is available in two models -- The Supremo(TM), with preservation and serving temperature management, and The Preservo(TM), with preservation capability only. The product is automated and reportedly doesn't require tedious pumping or spraying. The appliance uses replaceable gas cartridges of "High Purity" Argon gas -- the same gas mixture used by quality wine makers, according to Pek.

The product will be available March 31 for a suggested retail price of U.S. $159.95 (Preservo model) and $229.95 (Supremo model). Both models are available in black, silver, and white finish.

Pek said that both models and the core technology are available on private label and OEM terms to selected manufacturers and marketers. The company is also actively seeking qualified gourmet gift and housewares retailers, distributors, and manufacturers representatives.
