Getting an Organized Wine Cellar – Part II

October 19th, 2010

Reading Gary Peterson’s last post on how he keeps his wine cellar organized makes me remember how disorganized my own wine cellar used to be. I was constantly finding jewels that had been tarnished by age.I now keep a spreadsheet with a grid to locate the row and column but I added something which is visually easy or a lazy way of keeping in touch with my collection.

As you can see above, it shows display bottles which are lit with LED lights that produce virtually no heat. Showing you an overview of how the bottles are situated, you can see how the picture below shows how those display bottles fit in the wine cellar. Some displays have eleven bottles below for an even case, some have nine above, some have three below.

As I drink down a case I will move it to a smaller collection of nine or three. With the display row softly lit I can walk around the room and see the labels of the wine in the column above or below.

It is easy to forget about logging a wine out but it easy to see open spaces. When I buy new wines I keep them on the counter in the case until I can log them in. I love my wine collection but I get lazy sometimes and the display row system allows me to stay in touch between those time when I can get into the details.

Are there any good tips on how you stay updated and keep an organized wine cellar?

Tech Tuesday Episode #6 – Virtual Tour of a Wine Cellar

October 19th, 2010

“We always wanted a wine cellar…”

Our installation scrapbook continues with this residential wine cellar that was installed in place of an exercise room that was no longer used. The owners tore down the room and made way for the beautiful entertainment tasting room you see now.

Where: Atlanta, Georgia
Project #: 201160
When: September 2010
Wood: Platinum Series in All Heart Redwood
Maximum Storage Capacity:  2800 wine bottles

Atlanta Georgia Wine Cellar Floorplan

Be sure to take the virtual walk through above.  The sidelight doors and glass panels provide for very easy viewing and give it a very contemporary look and feel to match the decor in the rest of the residential home.

The wood racks are done in All Heart Redwood with our Platinum Series with a light lacquer stain on them.  The tasting table really gives them the ability to entertain and make way for their wine accessories. Individual bottle racking is finished with beveled and rounded rails to protect labels. With the solid archway, it gives them a beautiful focal point as well as a place to hang their artwork in this Georgia wine room.

Notice the LED lighting for their display row.  The special lighting is essential to light the room without harming the wine.  The display row is very attractive for easy viewing of your favorite wines.

The installation on the project was on completed on target by our very own wine cellar installation team. If you need help installing your wine cellar, contact us for professional assistance.
