The Magnificent Redwood: Top Choice For Wine Cellars

April 28th, 2011

Today we revel on the magnificent Redwood, which has been the preferred wood of choice by wine lovers for their wine racks and wine cellars.

We have written about Redwood several times before, but no, we can’t seem to get enough of it! Such a magnificent tree provides such amazing, durable wood that it deserves to be praised and promoted every now and then. It really is no wonder why this beautiful wood species is a favorite. Its performance characteristics are unbeatable –resistance to shrinking, warping, and natural resistance to rot and mildew. The Redwood is known for its ageless beauty, and the fact that all our Redwood here in WCI is environmentally-friendly is another plus. I mean, when your wood wine racks are made only from the finest wood and you know you’re not harming the environment in any way, shouldn’t you be proud?

Premium Redwood and All Heart Redwood

Here at Wine Cellar Innovations, our Redwoods come in two choices – Premium Redwood (known for its beautiful swirls and streaks of pink, white and purple) and All Heart Redwood (wood from the center of the tree which is reddish-brown in color). A reading of the differences between both woods reveals that no matter which type of Redwood you choose for your wine cellar, you get gorgeous wood that can withstand the test of time. And it doesn’t even matter if the wood is bare or stained! Naturally beautiful and lending itself to stains and finishes, the Redwood truly is king of all woods – and wine cellars!


Fine wine cellars showcasing the deep, rich reddish brown color of All Heart Redwood and remarkable grain of the Redwood or any of its color variations definitely add character to the cellar. They have been featured in our Tech Tuesdays. Just take a look at these Redwood racks stained in dark walnut, or this All Heart Redwood wine closet cellar!

With its unique characteristics, Redwood wine racks really make the perfect wine storage solution. Still not convinced? Check out the post Why We Love Premium Redwood and All Heart Redwood. There may be other wood choices for your wine cellar, but if you want nothing but the best, the magnificent Redwood is your best bet.
