Tech Tuesday – Episode #21 – The Huggins Wine Cellar

February 1st, 2011

Well hello February!

Time flies indeed, and we’re pretty busy putting together some amazing Technical Tuesdays for you.  We hope you didn’t miss last week’s feature, Cut Rate Liquor.

Now what better way to start the month of love with a huge, gorgeous residential wine cellar?

What: Residential Wine Cellar Project #: 202277-5
Wood: Premium Redwood, Dark Walnut
Maximum capacity:  2392 bottles
Where: Morgantown, WV

For their wine racks, it’s no surprise that Bob and June Huggins chose the Gold Series. These custom wine racks are the top choice of those who are all about beauty on a budget. Providing both full depth racking and great wine storage options, these racks look absolutely fabulous in Premium Redwood stained in Dark Walnut. Why, wooden wine racks never looked this beautiful!

Surely, with a wine cellar that can accommodate over two thousand bottles, the owners will definitely stock up on various sized bottles.  So we’re loving the single and double deep individual wine bottle storage that comes with spacing for half bottles, standard wine, champagne, magnums, and larger sizes.

Of course, no wine room would be complete without a beautiful archway and table top. The archway makes a great backdrop for a favorite art piece, and in this case, it’s no surprise why it’s a figurine of a man dribbling a ball – owner Bob Huggins is a player and head coach! With the archway always comes the table top — the perfect working space. Whether it’s to entertain guests, make notes or simply marvel at all the wines, archways and table tops are always an invaluable addition to any wine cellar.


This lovely wine cellar comes with the must-haves: rectangular and diamond bin bottles, LED lights and bulk storage. For those hard to reach bottles up top, a stylish rolling ladder completes this wine room’s appeal.

The Huggins have a beautiful home, and to us, this wine cellar is its main attraction. But then again, as Geoff Coyle writes in his WVIllustrated article, “But this is a home to Bob and June, not a museum, and the living quarters are equally impressive. There’s nothing too extravagant, nothing that screams for attention, just a beautiful place to live.”

And, this wine cellar is indeed another beautiful home for a wine lover’s precious wines.
