Wine Cellar Innovations Helps Raise Money for Culinary Scholarship

November 14th, 2010

If you’ve been following our blog or have been a frequent visitor of our site, then you know how passionate we are about creating a beautiful wine rack and custom wine cellars.

Did we ever tell you that we love supporting great causes too?

Recently, Wine Cellar Innovations donated a beautiful wine rack from our Vintner Series , one of our kits that offer a wide variety of racking options to The Stephan Pyles Celebrity Chef Dinner & Auction, which benefits the The Stephan Pyles Culinary Scholarship of The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas.

The auction was held on November 7, 2010, and we were more than pleased to offer a wine rack to help raise money.  Our donation was an Individual bottle wine rack made from unstained Premium Redwood, featuring 5 columns with display , with a 60 bottle capacity.

Each wine bottle stored on this wine rack is cradled on customized rails that are carefully manufactured with beveled ends and rounded edges to ensure wine labels will not tear when the bottles are removed. This beautiful wine rack also has a built-in display row.

Just in case you didn’t know, Stephan Pyles is the Chef/Owner of Stephan Pyles Concepts. He was named Esquire Magazine’s Chef of the Year for 2006, is a fifth generation Texan, pioneer of New American cooking and founding father of Southwestern Cuisine. He has created 15 restaurants in four cities over the past 26 years including Routh Street Cafe, Baby Routh, and Star Canyon.

Pyles and the Wine & Food Foundation of Texas joined forces to host the 11th annual Celebrity Chef dinner at Pyles’s restaurant, and we were just more than happy to help raise money for the super chef’s culinary scholarship.
