Increase Your Wine Cellar’s Charm With Custom Wine Cellar Windows

April 15th, 2013

Hey, hey it’s Monday! How’s the start of the workweek going so far, wine cellar lovers? If you’re busy running around all day, then you’ll definitely enjoy spending a little quality downtime  later in the day and reading something  interesting and wine-related – like today’s blog. We’re going to be talking about custom wine cellar windows today and how they can actually amp up the aesthetic appeal of your cellars. WCI has several gorgeous options for you to explore, so let’s get to it!

Delectable designs…


If you haven’t checked out our custom wine cellar windows section in the website yet, then now’s a good time to do so. Basically, there are four main styles you can choose from and you can further personalize them depending on the artistic flavor you have in mind:

What’s great about these custom made windows is that you can also choose one to match your custom wine cellar door. So for example, if you’re having a glass-paneled wine room, you can have windows with custom glass etchings to create unity in the design. Or, if you have relatively plain, standard wooden doors installed, you can add a bit of drama with painted window panes like the Savoie etch/ Salinas Painted Grapes model. Plus, with the right wine cellar lighting accessories, your windows will be significantly enhanced, ultimately creating a more attractive ambiance.

…and quality materials!

It’s best to note that with any product that comes from WCI, it’s not just about the looks. We always make it a point to provide the best quality materials as well. That applies not just to our wine racks and furniture but to all our wine cellar accessories as well, like our doors and windows. In general, we utilize more or less similar materials for our doors and windows: quality wood choices, heavy-duty glass units, and highly durable metal components.

As far as our windows are concerned, WCI uses etched double paned glass units consisting of two 3/16” thick tempered panes with a 3/16” air gap for a 9/16” total thickness. In case the client orders for custom glass etchings, the same are sandblasted. Virtually any kind of design can be reproduced on the panes, from family initials, family crests, vineyard scenes, and even original artwork. Now if the client wants painted glass instead, the inner glass pane can be painted per customer specifications with artwork provided. In the case of a door or sidelight with painted areas, it will be triple paned with the painted piece of glass having paint on both sides and insulated between two plain pieces of glass.
