A story of enthusiasts
La Vieille Garde is the result of the shared passion for wine and spirits and the great technical skill in cabinet making and refrigeration of its owners. Right from the start, they set themselves the goal of building the most efficient wine cabinets and wine cellars in the world!
Founded in 2004, La Vieille Garde began its operations by manufacturing standard wine cabinets. Very quickly, LVG developed a great deal of expertise enabling it to tailor the size of its units to the specific needs of its clientele. Thus, over the years, La Vieille Garde has become the reference in custom residential and commercial projects.
Since its founding, La Vieille Garde has extended its expertise to commercial refrigerators (air curtain refrigerated counters, meat refrigerators, refrigerated display cases) and has become a must for several restaurant and delicatessen chains. With a growing presence in North America, La Vieille Garde is becoming an international reference in the field of wine conservation and custom refrigeration, linking efficiency, performance and aesthetics.
