In three-star Michelin dining rooms, the sommelier often arrives with your wine on a gueridon. This moving service station lends itself to many tasks, but it is especially perfect for presenting wine. You can load up every single item necessary for tableside decanting and service. A gueridon is the ultimate addition to any home of a serious wine collector. This fantastic example from 1stdibs ($2,000) is a 1950s copper trolley from France, and is one of dozens of styles available on the market. (1stdibs.com)
