Technical Tuesday Episode #258: Eddie Merlot’s New Branch Outfitted In Platinum Series

November 17th, 2015

Guess who’s back on the Tech Tuesday spotlight? It’s Eddie Merlot’s, wine lovers and good ol’ Eddie is getting bigger and better – than includes their wine cellars and of course, wine selection! Now if you all can still recall, WCI has played a significant role in these expansion projects as we’ve built Eddie’s wine cellars in a number of different locations. Presently, Eddie’s has branches in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. But recently, they’ve added yet another location – this time in Allen, IN. And who do you think decked out their newest branch with an impressive 690-bottle wine cellar?

Project # 263981
Wood: Platinum / All-Heart Redwood
Bottle Capacity: 690
Where: Allen, IN

Eddie Merlot's wine cellar decked in the Platinum Series

The Platinum x All-Heart Redwood combo has been pretty much a staple in our Eddie Merlot projects. This one is no different and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The entire wine cellar is outfitted in a sleek arrangement of the Platinum Series wine racking units in unstained All-Heart Redwood. Our design team made clever use of interspersing the Individual Bottle Columns with High Reveal Displays and Solid Vertical Displays to provide variety as well as a really spacious appearance to the bottle storage assembly. Wood Case Bottle racks and Open Diamond Cubes with Solid Face Trim were also thrown in for additional bulk bottle storage.

Vintage View wine racks make for tons of extra storage.

But that’s not all! Adding a little twist to the newest addition to the Eddie Merlot’s growing chain of restos, this wine cellar also sports our VintageView Series metal wine racks. Check out how the racks are displayed in a floor-to-ceiling fashion with the help of a Floor-to-Ceiling frame. This will give the bottles the illusion of “floating” in mid-air! We can’t wait to see how this section of the wine cellar will look when it’s all filled up ^_^.

Super safe storage with our Wine Lockers!

We daresay that this is one of Eddie’s most versatile wine cellar projects to date because apart from the bottle storage variety brought about by the Platinum Series custom wine racks and the VintageView metal racks that were also incorporated into this project, Eddie’s also purchased several of our Wine Lockers. See how they fit nice and snug into that wall? These Wine Lockers are a very smart decision because they can properly protect your rarest, most expensive labels. If you’re running a successful business like Eddie’s, you can’t be too careful about your precious merchandise.
