Northland Wins ADEX Award

The Northland difference was a standout amongst 2,000 products at the 2005-06 Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) as the 105-Bottle Connoisseur Collection Wine Cellar took home a gold award for design and innovation. Nearly 500 companies submitted their products to the ADEX awards—the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade.


"At-home refrigerated wine cellars are becoming more sophisticated," said Tony Ellett, sales manager for Northland. "Proper wine preservation is just as important as the aesthetical design, and the judges recognized Northland's Connoisseur Collection as a true winner."

Northland's exclusive Connoisseur Collection of undercounter and full-height wine cellars are designed for discriminating homeowners who enjoy convenient yet elegant entertaining. The Connoisseur Collection boasts magnificent design, quality craftsmanship and unparalleled form and function. The 105-Bottle Wine Cellar, Model CWC105, measures 24 inches wide and features a glass door with a beveled door frame. Interior features include a user-selectable lighting display that elegantly highlights bottles against midnight black interiors and natural maple wine-rack fronts.

All models in the Connoisseur Collection feature the patented Northland cooling system, a self-contained module that holds the refrigeration cooling components separate from the cabinet. This allows increased capacity and minimizes vibration that can cause wine trauma.

Northland is a leading manufacturer of refrigerator/freezer systems and wine cellars. For complete information regarding the Connoisseur Collection or to locate a Northland distributor near you, visit or contact Northland, an Aga Group Company, at (800) 223-3900.
