Hi ho, hi ho! It’s off to another Tech Tuesday project we go! We’re featuring another fab glass-enclosed living space for everyone today and are we totally hyped:
What: Residential Wine Cellar
Wood: Gold/Premium Redwood
Maximum Capacity: 0
Where: Longwood, FL
WCI has done a ton of these glass-enclosed projects simply because it’s one of the most in demand wine cellar designs. Naturally, it’s not without good reason. Anything utilizing glass elements exudes a sophisticated and timeless charm. And in this case, combining glass with one of our best custom wine racking lines is a sure recipe for sheer gorgeousness.
One of the focal points of this wine cellar is its super funky lighting set-up. You can see from the images how it’s rigged to change several hues to create a medley of moods. It’s certainly not the usual lighting system used in standard wine cellars, but it’s a fresh and equally tasteful take on modern elegance. Of course, this is where the glass panels become an absolutely perfect choice because they can facilitate the creation of different looks for any wine cellar even if you basically use the same materials.
Now for this project, wood wine racks and decorative floor tiling were the major materials used. Notice the semi-elaborate floor design and how everything still manages to come together without one decorative element overwhelming the other. The secret here is creating a balance between and among the materials. For example, the Gold Series custom wine racks in unstained Premium Redwood were chosen to create a simple and solid racking assembly. An unstained version of the wood is a very good decision because in this case, the racks are accentuated by the lighting, flooring, and the glass panels and not drowned out by the same.
There is no compromising in terms of quality here, either. Let’s take these glass panels as the best example. WCI manufactures glass-enclosed living spaces from 1/2-inch thick panes which are joined using a clear silicone bead for a seamless connection. The result is a fully insulated wine cellar which keeps every bottle under ideal storage conditions. In addition, WCI provides top-notch professional installation and assembly services with a fantastic guarantee in terms of both labor and materials.
So do you think that a glass-enclosed living space such as this deliciously fab creation is in your wine cellar goals in the near future? Don’t just sit there and wait it out!

Bulk storage may not be a common problem for residential wine cellars, but it certainly is a constant one for commercial wine establishments. More often than not, these wine and other liquor stores would just stash their merchandise without giving a second thought to their appearance on the racks or displays. As a result, their selling point is greatly diminished. But that’s not all. The more important consideration here would be the safe storage of those loose bottles since they’re being stored in bulk. That’s why it’s highly recommended to choose the right kind of racks which can accommodate your merchandise but at the same time, showcase them in an appealing manner as well.
We provide the needed solutions!
Now when it comes to providing the most appropriate racking remedies to your loose bottles, WCI has all the bases covered. We have an extensive selection of bulk bottle storage options which can allow you to store bottles, bins, cases, and boxes in a most secure way. In addition, we have designed these bulk storage racks to be eye-catching as well which means you can still get away with a stylish racking assembly despite all that “bulk.” Here are some of the more popular choices:
- Wood Case Storage | Fixed Shelves
- Adjustable Wine Shelves
- Pull Out Wine Shelving for Wood Cases
- Cardboard Case Storage | Fixed Shelves
- Pull Out Wine Shelving for Cardboard Cases
- Rectangular Open Wine Bins | Fixed Shelves
- Pull Out Rectangular Wood Wine Bins
These bulk storage racks are actually available in single and double deep options as well. Moreover, you’re assured of super safe storage thanks to 1×2 supports recessed into dadoed side supports, eased edge front posts, and CNC machined spacer bars. Plus, with the flexible configurations, you can easily combine them with your existing racking assembly, especially with racks coming from WCI’s wine rack kits and custom lines.
And all fully customizable, too!
Apart from the above-enumerated selections, WCI also carries a fab collection of Diamond Wine Racks which can be utilized for bulk storage as well. Diamond racks and bins are one of the most stylish ways of storing more and more bottles. It gives your entire set-up a nice artistic touch while providing more space for additional stocks, more than you could have expected! Additionally, these Diamond Wine Racks as well as the other bulk bottle storage options can be further customized to suit the design preference of the proprietor and make them match any existing store décor. For example, you can pick out various wood choices, dress them up in custom stains and finishes, and add custom moldings as well.
So why should you go cluttering up your stores with more merchandise when you can still do things the fab way! Visit our online store now and chat with a design specialist for gorgeous bulk bottle storage options. ^_^
A toast to Testimonial Thursdays! We hope you guys are loving this segment in our blog as much as we do. After all, nothing can make us happy as much as seeing and hearing from happy and contented customers. Today, we’re featuring this handsome wine tasting center our design specialists tailored for George and Michelle Dobbel.
Check out this super spacious wine racking assembly. It’s WCI’s Open Diamond Bins in All-Heart Redwood as well as our flexible wine displays. Notice that the Diamond Bins can easily store over dozen bottles in each cube and there’s even enough space on top for your cases and boxes. Also, check out how the wine displays are able to hold bottles in different size formats. The clients have a fair number of magnums and champagne in their collection so this racking assembly answered to that need perfectly!
Now here’s a shot of the client’s home bar. We love how the bold finish made the tabletop and hardware stand out in such a prominent way. WCI’s specialists duplicated that luxurious appeal by dressing up the racks in dark stain. Hence, the grain patterns of All-Heart Redwood were further accentuated. It’s worthy to note that with the Redwood specie, you can’t go wrong with either a stained or unstained version. The wood’s natural colors are gorgeous enough. But if you want to match your racks with your cellar’s existing interior or with our existing furniture, then custom stains and finishes are the best way to go like what was done with this project.
So what did George and Michelle have to say about the final results?
“Your company designed and built the racks for our Wine Cellar through Wine Enthusiast late last year. It took us a while to complete the job and now we are done. We are thrilled with the quality and look of the racks. We used heart redwood with the dark stain. I couldn’t believe how many boxes arrived when they were delivered and only one part was missing; to my surprise, the part (a wood trip piece) was made, stained and Federal Expressed to me within a few days directly from your location; terrific customer service!
Thank you again for a wonderful experience. Enjoy the pictures, you were a big part of making it happen.”
Well, we couldn’t be happier ourselves! Looks like it’s another job well done and a very satisfied customer to add to our list. Each glowing testimonial is a feather on our cap and this makes us want to go the extra mile with each and every wine cellar project we undertake. So if you’re starting on yours, allow us to give you a hand. For sure, it’ll be our pleasure and yours, too! ^_^
It seems like we can never talk enough about how we can create more space in our wine cellars. That’s because it’s not only a common problem but it’s a constant one as well. Even commercial wine establishments run across this problem despite all the initial planning for their store’s floor space. So how can you come up with more storage space without having to undergo full-blown renovation? Here are a few clever ideas that can definitely help you out!
1. Consider metal storage racks.
Metal commercial wine racks are one of the most space-efficient solutions to wine cellar space dilemmas. Here at WCI, we have the Vintage View collection to answer to such storage needs. Vintage View wine racks can actually be utilized for both residential and commercial wine cellars, particularly the most recent addition – the Evolution Series. These metal storage racks can be stacked or wall-mounted, depending on the need for space. Additionally, WCI also has a separate line of metal commercial racks, including custom-built ones, to specifically answer to provide storage solutions to wine stores:
- Standard Metal Wine Racks
- Conventional Metal Wine Racks
- Vintage View Commercial Metal Wine Racks
- Deluxe Metal Wine Racks
- Custom Commercial Metal Wine Racks
2. Invest in multi-functional tasting tables.
Instead of just a tasting table that can provide you with some working space, try replacing your old one with one that do double-duty. WCI sports a healthy selection of functional and very attractive wine tasting tables that can also let you store dozens of bottles. You can even choose from individual or bulk bottle storage options. Plus, the spacious tabletops can allow you to display your choice glassware as well:
- Redwood 180 Bottle Wine Tasting Table
- Redwood 216 Bin Storage Wine Tasting Table
- Oak Wine Bar
- 108 Bottle Tasting Table
3. Discover the functionality of commercial gondola shelves.
This is one of the newest lines we’ve launched for our line of commercial wine racks and displays this year. Commercial gondola shelves are super practical and come in so many varieties. The semi-custom designs are wonderfully eye-candy while the flexible configurations enable you to mix and match them with each other and with your existing wine racking assembly. Now you can store hundreds more bottles by just adding two, three, or more of these shelves to your establishment.
4. Trim corners with curved corner racks.
Sometimes, we fail to realize just how much floor space is being wasted just because we don’t know what to do with all those stubborn sharp corners, nooks, and crannies in our wine cellars. But with the right kind of racks, they can still be transformed into valuable storage space. That’s why WCI has come up with a line of semi-custom as well as custom curved corner racks which can enable your wine racking assembly to span the length of your cellar smoothly, effectively trimming those corners. The Platinum Series, in particular, hosts a wide selection of such racking options:
- 90 Degree True Radiused Curved Corner
- 45 Degree True Radiused Curved Corner with High Reveal Wine Displays
- Angled Curved Corner
- 90 Degree Square Corner
And these are not the only space-saving solutions we can offer you! Just get in touch with a WCI design consultant today and see how we can literally make it all fit for you and your wine cellars. ^_^
