Ristorante Panorama, in the Penn’s View Hotel in Old City, just got word from Guinness World Records that it has the world's largest winekeeper/cruvinet in its wine bar.

It holds 120 bottles.


The custom-built keeper was designed by owner Luca Sena in 1990 when he opened the restaurant.


The cruvinet pressurizes open wine bottles with inert nitrogen gas to keep the wine in optimum condition.
