Furniture designer Arthur Tabrizi knows how to hold his wine; he has been making bespoke wine racks for more than a dozen years. His latest creation, the 11-ounce, 3-inch-tall Stretto wine bottle cradle (shown below), keeps the bottle at an angle that is ideal for letting the wine breathe and allowing sediment to settle. Tabrizi (www.tabriziart.com) offers the Stretto in three versions, the most notable of which is the $2,500-plus Raro, which comes with a diamond embedded in the front.
