Technical Tuesday Episode #71 – A Magical Moment With Vintner and Premium Redwood in Classic Mahogany Stain

February 7th, 2012

“From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all.” ~Waldo Emerson~

When light and glass combine, the result is nothing but pure beauty. And pure beauty is exactly what is reflected in today’s Tech Tuesday feature. Witness the love affair between light and glass in this enthralling wine cellar closet transformation.

Who won’t be enthralled with these stunning shots? Once again, Vintner shows us why it holds the crown in WCI’s line of top-quality wine cellar rack kits. Let us enjoy the interlude of a gorgeous wine racking system with just the right stain option. The racks, including the Red Oak ladder, are all dressed up in Classic Mahogany stain for a super luxe feel.

What: Residential Wine Cellar
Project #: 216647
Wood: Premium Redwood, Vintner Series
Maximum Capacity:  1998 bottles
Where: Midland, MI

The reason why the Vintner Series is a class all on its own is fairly obvious. Take this wine cellar closet with its very limited floor area. Because these racks are configured in such a way that they can accommodate just about any ceiling height, outfitting a small space seems rather effortless. Note the variety in the wine racking system here. Individual and bulk bottle storage, wine displays for standard and larger-sized bottles, and diamond bins all come together in seamless proportions.

This here is a marvelous shot showcasing the luxurious beauty of  the stained racks. Classic Mahogany is one of our more popular stain options because of its elegant color. Of course, since Premium Redwood was the main wood choice, it goes without saying that the wood sets off the stain quite well. Redwood, after all, is known for its ability to retain stains and finishes wonderfully. The bevy of grain patterns for this wood shows up even better with darker stains, like what we see here.

Because it’s the Vintner Series, expect to get nothing but the best when it comes to custom wine racks. See how sleek and polished the entire set-up looks? Thanks to the custom crown and base moldings, everything seems to just come together flawlessly. You can actually have the lengths of these moldings customized to fit the desired proportions of your racks. Now how’s that for giving your wine cellar a perfect fit? And of course, our signature beveled rails and eased edges come with the entire Vintner wine rack line, ensuring safe and comfy storage for every bottle.

The Quarter Round Shelf Cabinets add a dramatic yet functional touch to finish off the entire wine racking system. The client had us reduce the height of the quarter rounds to custom fit the limited space in this wine cellar. That’s how amazing everything can get once you have all the right elements come together. In this case, it’s the perfect wine rack kit combined with the best of professional design services from our expert design specialists.

Last but not the least, props to the client for the ingenious lighting set-up that enhanced the beauty of the racks to magical proportions. WCI also offers custom wine cellar lighting packages so if this ethereal look inspired you today, we can make it come true for you as well!
