Mr. Vinerack, also known as Larry Stern, is a custom wrought iron vine rack (ie "vine rack", not wine rack) builder from New Jersey. The former owner of a local liquor store, Larry came up with the idea to create his masterpieces in 1989 after asking local customers why they didn't like the commercial wrought iron bottle racks that he gave away as promotions. Most of the people replied that they were not attractive and plain, or that they were easy to tip over.
Having no previous welding experience, Larry sought help and knowledge from his friends. After understanding the art of blind welding, Larry began creating the works of art that he makes today. Decorative and functional, his wine racks are a work of art and give the illusion of "taking the bottle of wine straight from the vine". Most of his shelves are wall-mounted, but he also has some floor, suspended, and counter creations. He prides himself on offering his clients unique pieces that are functional and beautiful.
