Newton Vineyard, an eco-conscious vineyard in the Napa Valley, takes part in an annual Eco-Chic collaboration. This year they got together with contemporary American designers Bruce and Stephanie Tharp to create the Puzzle Tray.
The Puzzle Tray is a must-have for any connoisseur of fine wines who appreciates design and has concern for the environment. The limited-edition wine tray, of which 112 will be produced, is made from FSC certified walnut wood, numbered and imprinted with the artists’ insignia. The asymmetrical, intersecting lines on the tray’s top (and the number 112) are inspired by the division of the winery’s 112 vineyard blocks. And the removable coasters/trays are reminiscent of a puzzle, “a nod to Newton Vineyard’s icon wine, ‘The Puzzle,’ which is created by blending the best grapes of the season’s five-varietal harvest.”
A “hidden cave” below the upper right block holds a Newton corkscrew, and there’s plenty of space for your wine, cheese, grapes, peanuts, or whatever other goodies you choose to devour.
