8 Important Wine Storage Tips To Know

September 30th, 2010

We all know that if the conditions aren’t right, wine will spoil.  There’s nothing worse than opening a bottle after years of storage, only to discover that instead of aging gracefully, it’s turned sour!

So whether you’re a long time wine lover or a wine newbie, we’ve put together a handy sheet to help you remember the essentials of storing and aging your wine properly.

Wine Storage

Keep your wine storage area cool ALWAYS. Whether it’s a cabinet, cellar, or refrigerator, keep the temperature between 50 and 65 degrees F for red wine and 45 to 60 degrees for white wine. This temperature lets wine improve and age properly, while keeping other harmful reactions at bay.

Mind your wine placement. Since heat rises, and white wines need wine cooler than reds, keep white wines close to the floor and red wines closer to the ceiling. Also, keep the younger wines (those that you plan to drink soon) near the door, and those precious bottles that you want to age in the back corners of your wine cellar.

Keep the area dark. Ultraviolet rays can cause the stable organic compounds in wine to degrade.  If you need to turn on the lights to read the labels of your wine, make sure you’re using incandescent, not florescent bulbs. The UV light from the latter can penetrate the glass and interfere with your wine’s aging.

Make sure there’s no vibration, or keep it at a minimum. Why? It disturbs the sediment that would otherwise fall to the bottom of the bottle as it is formed.

Wine RacksLay bottles on their sides. The purpose is to keep the corks moist, preventing them from drying out and letting in too much oxygen.  To keep the corks from getting too moist or too dry, keep humidity between 50 and 80% .

Keep smells out of your cellar. Odors in your wine storage environment can change the way the wine tastes!  Always consider your paint, floors, and every other material in your storage area. They have to be odorless!

Develop a system to keep things organized and track aging. Whether it’s on paper or in a computer wine cellar database, you can easily keep track of what bottles you have and how long they’ve been aging. Check out some nifty software for managing your wine collection. Your notes should include when you bought the wine, its name, region, producer, vineyard name, price, estimated value and of course, your tasting notes!

Buy or use racks built and designed for excellent wine storage. Certain types of wine cellar woods and treatments can impart undesirable tastes to the bottles. You wouldn’t want that!

Here at Wine Cellar Innovations, we have a great selection of wine racks for your taste and space, and can build the wine cellar of your dreams!

Coppola’s Wine Wonderland

September 22nd, 2010

“To me, wine is an element that takes part in the family gathering.” – Francis Ford Coppola

How would you like to experience fabulous wine, nature’s beauty, movie nostalgia, excellent food and family bonding all at the same time?

Then head on over to film director Francis Ford Coppola’s newly renovated winery in Sonoma Country, home of some of the best rated wines in the world.  Winemag talks about the director’s stunning winery and its offers, and we are absolutely impressed and entertained. Whenever we think wineries, we naturally think of beautiful sprawling vineyards, wine cellars, and wine tastings, but Coppola’ latest creation is all about family gathering and bonding. His belief? “Whenever people take a meal, wine or something like it is part of it, and it’s a blessing, a sacrament, a unifier.” Where else can you find a winery that puts family as the main concern in its creation?

More than wine tastings, tours, festive events and movie memorabilia, Coppola’s winery is meant to be fun for the entire family to visit. Here’s what we (and Winemag!) love about Coppola’s concept: making the winery a place where not only adults can enjoy wine tastings, but also a place where kids can have fun! And what better way for kids to have fun than providing a huge swimming pool with loads of animal floaties created by The Floatys. The Floatys sells a large range of inflatables and they are a blast for the kids. We can see it now – moms and dads sampling Coppola wines in the chateau tasting room, enjoying stunning vineyard views, while the kids splash around in the pool!

Even in his winery, Coppola still plays meticulous director, with families playing the starring role. True to director form, Coppola involved himself in every element of the winery’s renovation, from fixtures selection to taste-testing recipes. And speaking of recipes, the winery boasts of 4 fabulous restaurants – Rustic, Café Zoetrope, Mammarella’s Café and Mammarella’s Foods.

Every single part of the winery has Coppola written all over it – large, amazing vision and scrupulous attention to detail. According to Winemag, one of the most intriguing wine offerings in the winery is the Director’s Cut 2007 Cinema, a “spicy, full-bodied red wine layered with dark berry fruit impressions and an edge of earthiness”. While you’re at it, also check out their >Diamond Collection, their Cabernet Sauvignon and look around their store for gifts, books, movie memorabilia and more.

Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind for a while and head to the beautiful Sonoma Francis Coppola Winery for a fun family day.

It truly is a wine wonderland!

Best Wine Cellar Doors To Suit Your Style

September 20th, 2010

Dark Wood Wine Cellar DoorThe entrance doors of wine cellars can be of varied styles, sizes, and colors. Wine connoisseurs can have their pick of the various designs that range from antique to contemporary models. And alongside the design of the wine cellar door is the consideration of its functionality.Wrought Iron Wine Cellar Door

Wine room doors function not solely for closing or opening of the cellar room, it must also perform other tasks at maximum level. The wine cellar door must be thoroughly constructed. It must be appropriately sealed or insulated to ensure that the moisture and temperature of the cellar is constant. The condition of the wine room should be kept stable because variable temperature and wine cellar humidity can interfere with the aging process of the wine. It will eventually affect the wines flavor after aging.

Cellar doors can be made from wood or glass. Both materials are good moisture barriers. Wooden doors can be made from redwood or mahogany. It can be plain wood, ornately hand-crafted, mixed with glass, or embellished with metal details. It can also be two-doors, depending on the design you want.

Painted Glass Wine Cellar DoorGlass doors are also nice for wine cellars to present a more modern and sleek look. Glass can be custom-designed by painting the whole glass door or it can be plain and topped with metal ornate etchings for added protection as well as design. Glass doors should be thick enough to insulate the wine room’s indoor temperature. It should also be sealed to keep the humidity inside the room invariable. You can also choose to have a Spanish style or European look for the doors of your wine room to match your whole house’s interior design.

When it comes to designs of wine cellar doors, the choice is almost infinite especially when you can have it custom-designed. As long as the door is functioning at its best, you can have the design that fits the splendor of your collections and speaks of your personal taste.

How to Build a Wine Cellar on a Budget

September 18th, 2010

Wine cellars have been thought to be a common fixture of the rich and privileged, the restaurateur or wine distributors and companies.

Well, not anymore.

Anyone who loves wines can certainly have his or her own room inside their houses solely for storing and keeping their prized wine collections.

To meet the demands of the growing number of wine lovers who want to have their own wine storerooms, manufacturers and designers made pre-designed wine storages that can be home-delivered complete with insulations and temperature controls as necessary requirements for every wine cellar. These are still generally costly but they are good investments especially for the wine lovers.

Wine enthusiasts living on a tight budget, especially these days that the economy is still on the rocks, have no reason to put their dreams of having their own wine cellars behind the closet.

If you are one of them, you can still have your own collection stored somewhere inside your own house. What is necessary is more of your imagination and a small portion of your bank account.

The general rule of thumb when it comes to storing wines is that the wines should be kept at temperatures between 55 – 70 degrees Fahrenheit and around 60 percent relative humidity.  These are typical ambient temperatures in colder areas so you will not need added insulation. Two more things to remember, the wines should be kept away from direct sunlight and vibrations.

With these things in mind, look for an unused room or closet inside the house. Perhaps, you have a storeroom that you can empty out. You don’t have to throw away everything in that room. Once you have cleared out the room, start fixing your wine racks. There are wine racking systems available with installation kits that you can easily follow. Since you don’t have a formal installation system, it is best to have your wine bottles kept horizontally to keep the corks moist in case the wine cellar humidity gets too low.

There you have it, when everything is done, you can store your cases of favorite wines and start collecting other rare and collectible items that you fancy in your very own self customized wine cellar. If you need help figuring out the correct wine racks to purchase off our website, please contact the wine storage experts so we can help!

Wine Cellar Accessories That Enhance Your Wine Cellar

September 16th, 2010

Whether you are at the beginning of creating the perfect wine cellar or you already have one created, wine cellar accessories are an important visual enhancement to your cellar. Searching for wine accessories can be made easy by using the website of Wine Cellar Innovations. Not just accessories, you can find a wide variety of decorations ranging from paintings, mosaics, stained glass and many more.

Wine Cellar Innovations also offers these types of wine cellar accessories that are created meticulously and carefully by its skilled artisans according to how you would like them to be made.

To top its list of eye-catching artworks is the Grapevine Copper Fountain with Brass Grape Clusters. This decorative addition is a wine cellar humidification fountain which is customized and completely done by hand. It flexibly matches any type of wood racking stain, thus making it a very versatile piece of artistic addition to any wine cellar.

The copper fountain is preserved with polyurethane to prevent it from tarnishing and its grape clusters can come in brass or burgundy. Water continuously flows smoothly touching the leaves (located at the centre) one by one. The fountain can be set up on the wall, in an archway, or on table tops.

Another piece of artwork Wine Cellar Innovations also customizes is Etched Mirrors. These Etched Mirrors are beautifully designed, sketched out and sandblasted also by hand only. This kind of art form can serve as an interesting focal point to your wine cellar. And, the mirror has its way of making your cellar appear larger and they are usually used in glass rack openings and archways.

To come up with a spectacular design for etched mirrors, the detailed etchings are coated with paint on the backside of the mirror so an etched image can materialize. Etched mirrors can be installed framed or bevelled however you’d like it done.

Moreover, Wine Cellar Innovations’ mosaic arts are also the most frequently requested piece of beautification people ask for. If you’d like to make you cellar appear more classic and elegant, this type of art form is the one to choose.

These mosaic pieces are also done entirely by hand with the use of high-quality antique fine china, stained glass and porcelain tiles as its primary material. During the process of making this artwork, the artist breaks the material into smaller pieces and creatively assembles them into amazingly well-thought scenery. Once the picture is done, it is grouted to a mason board and sealed with the use of a protective glaze.

Mosaic arts, just like etched mirrors, are also commonly set up in archways and glass rack openings. But to make it more different than the usual, Wine Cellar Innovations also modifies mosaic pieces which can be installed in the flooring – you can actually step on it and the mosaic never breaks.

These are only a few wine cellar art and cellar accessories to cite offered by Wine Cellar Innovations. Hand painted tiles, stained glass, murals, and rumbled stone are also made available. If you’d like to get to know more about these aesthetic additions, you can contact Christy, the Cellar Manager, and she’ll be happy to assist you.

Finally, if you want the artworks done with a bit of your personal touch, you can provide Wine Cellar Innovations with your own piece of artwork may it be family initials, family crests, or your favorite wine label. Just give a sample and our talented artists will handle everything for you.

Dilly Café: Uniqueness Built Up in Time

September 15th, 2010

What started out as a deli has now metamorphosed into a café with a host of great things to offer their customers; from gourmet foods, sandwiches, wines and beer, including great music and warm ambiance. The changes the Dilly Deli Wines & Gourmet restaurant in Cincinnati, Ohio underwent are not something that they can say they’ve actually planned. They let time, circumstance, and a great deal of their skilled staff to take them on an exciting ride.

A real evidence of their time-based progression is their twenty year old premium redwood wine racks. Their wooden wine racks display a number of their hand-picked domestic and imported wines, which earns them nothing but great reviews.

A combination of wine racks wonderfully flaunts the labels of their wines. The Triple Tier Maximizer Wine Display lets them exhibit wine labels while keeping them all nicely tucked in a well maximized manner. The adjustable shelf helps them display the wines while keeping the rest properly stacked to avoid drying of the wine corks. The island shelves displays some wine bottles on top while the underneath storage keeps the rest of the dozen bottles. These display racks allow them to offer varied types of wines that their patrons really love without eating up too much of the wine store’s space.

They may have transferred to a bigger area but owing to the continuously growing number of their customers who frequent the place, they still sometimes find the area really full. A great feature of their café that helps them manage their clientele is their lovely English courtyard, especially if the weather is fair.  So if you are looking for a great place to dine, wine and relax in Mariemont, there is no better place than Dilly. Be sure to visit their establishment for Ohio wine cellars if you would like to view the quality of our racking too.

If you are a wine store looking to use commercial wine racks to enhance your store, please feel free to contact us. We would love to help you figure out your wine storage needs!

Technical Tuesday – New Wine Cellar Installations

Seeing the bottles laid out, the beautiful lighting hitting the racks, and imagining that the wine cellar was in my house is always a delicious way to spend a few hours minutes on the Internet.  I mean, have you seen our new searchable photo gallery yet? It’s awesome! (We are always adding photos!)

Custom Premium Redwood Plan

Where: Garrison Creek – Walla Walla, WA
Project #: 202241-3
When: August 2010
Wood: Custom Premium Redwood unstained
Maximum Storage Capacity: 1,522 wine bottles

Custom Premium Redwood unstained

Garrison Creek was looking to have a custom wine cellar installed and went with our Gold Series Custom Wine Racks that is our mid-range selection of wine racks. Our Gold Series package takes all of your needs into consideration and provides a full depth racking with a variety of storage options.  Garrison Creek decided to go with curved corners with true radius wine racks, front wine displays, waterfall racks, and bulk storage for cases.

waterfall wine racks

With beautiful crown molding with JD Crown and base moldings with OG Base, including toe kicks, the whole design is beautiful with unstained Premium Redwood.  Having moldings attached to the wine racks only enhances the finished look of the finished wine room.  The moldings are manufactured up to 6 inch lengths for ease of packing and shipping. This will result in material seams on runs longer than 6 inches but as you can see, once the installation is complete it looks beautiful.  With the wine rack toe kicks installed that also gives you extra protection of not having your wine rest on the floor and provides stability to the entire wine rack starting at ground zero.

high reveal display champagne bottles

While the maximum wine bottle capacity is 1,522 wine bottles throughout the whole wine cellar, each of the racks breaks the options down a little differently. With the champagne bottles, they have a minimum of 3” and max of 3 3/8” for bottle cubicle size. Total bottle storage for single deep wine storage is 599. There are three row high reveal display champagne bottles with a total of 15 for storage. The various solid diamond bins with x interlock trim have a total storage capacity of 526 bottles. Regular wine bottles with a bottle diameter of 2 9/16” to 3 1/8” have a storage capacity of 115. Fully there are three row high reveal for wine bottle display with a total capacity of 5 bottles.

Why We Love Premium and All Heart Redwood Wine Racks

September 13th, 2010

By far the most popular wood wine rack species to use when building custom wine racks and wine cellars are Redwood, Pine and Mahogany.  While each wood species is unique in its own way, Redwood is perhaps the most popular, and it’s definitely one of our favorites!

And why not? It’s such a beautiful wood species. Redwood has qualities not found in other woods. Its performance characteristics include resistance to shrinking, warping, and checking in addition to durability. Redwoods come in two choices – Premium Redwood and All Heart Redwood. From small home wine racks, to large commercial wine racking systems and grand wine cellars, we have fallen in love with Premium and All Heart Redwood wine racks for their durability and ageless beauty, and the fact that they’re environmentally friendly!

What is Premium and All Heart Redwood anyway?

All-Heart Redwood comes from the center of the mighty Redwood tree. It is characterized by a deep, rich reddish brown color and a remarkable grain. Even without a finish, All Heart has natural beauty, and its appearance improves over time. Because it is naturally resistant to rot and mildew, it has been the wood of choice for fine wine cellars for over a century now.

Premium Redwood, on the other hand, has a variety of colors: white to pink to dark purple swirled and streaked together. These color variations add character to the wine cellar, not to mention beautiful without the need for a finish and is non-aromatic. It functions admirably in climatically controlled wine cellars, and because it contains natural wood preservatives, it will withstand the humid conditions within your wine storage room. It is also the least expensive of the two redwood species.

Agelessly beautiful, durable and eco-friendly

Redwood, as you may already know, has the ability to withstand the test of time. You don’t have to worry about discoloration over time nor constant sanding and refinishing.  It has an amazing grown-in-resistance to decay and insects, and because Redwood has an open-celled structure and contains little or no pitch or resins, it can absorb and retain all types of finishes extremely well.

Moreover, choosing Redwood is an environmentally sound decision.

Here at Wine Cellar Innovations, all our Redwood is SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) Certified. This forest certification standard is based on principles that promote sustainable forest management, including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk, and Forests with Exceptional Conservation Value.

SFI is one of the two national “Green” Forestry management organizations. It is a fully independent, charitable organization dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management. They work with conservation groups, local communities, resource professionals, landowners, and countless other organizations and individuals who share their passion for responsible forest management.

Shouldn’t you be proud that your wood wine racks are made only from the finest wood without harming the environment?

Attractive, durable and eco-friendly, the Premium Redwood or All Heart Redwood will surely add texture and interest to your cellar design and capture the essence of your wine collection.  If you planning your wine cellar and need some expert advice, fill out our Design Request Form so we can help you start the process or visit our online Materials Catalog (PDF) to browse through examples.
