QuakeGuardian® - Earthquake protection for wine
Welcome to QuakeGuardian.com®
Our office is located in Novato, in beautiful Marin County,
California. Novato has often been referred to as “The Gateway to the
Wine Country”. Sonoma and Napa counties lie just to the north on
Highway 101. With over 340 wineries in Napa and Sonoma Counties alone,
this is a beautiful place to live. World-renowned wineries like
Sebastiani, Benziger, and Silver Oak are located here, just to name a
few! See an
overview of the California Wine Country.
Our parent company, Sterling Products was created in late 2004 and
has expanded from one idea; “To protect your collection of wine from
damage during an earthquake”. This includes protecting wine from
unexpected accidents, as well.
Greeting From Ed Schmidt
I am an inventor who likes to create, and I have always made
things for my family and myself. One morning while trying to sleep, an
idea to make a wine rack at my house popped into my head. My next
thought after building the rack was, how do I protect the wine bottles
from earthquakes? Living in the state of California made this an
important and relevant question. I could not get the thought out of my
head. After some checking around, I discovered that no one made a
product that would protect wine bottles from damage during an
earthquake. Sure, there are wine racks that are built deeper and at a
slight incline so the bottle has more room to move, but will this stop
the wine bottle from being launched out the front of the rack during
My idea became what we now call QuakeGuardian, a device that holds
the wine bottles in place on the rack during an earthquake. Please
watch our video to see how QuakeGuardian™ can
protect your wine collection!
We also wanted a Wine Label System™
to help identify your wine without removing it from the rack. We
created a tag hanging from the neck of the bottle on which you can
write down information about the wine. So, out of one idea came
another. This idea was named, "Wine Tag It!™”.
