Basement Wine Cellar With WineMaker Wine Racks

May 23rd, 2019

DIY wine cellars can be a hit and miss when you’re a total newbie to the whole process. Fortunately, WCI has been studying the construction process for decades and we have identified these wine storage needs and wants. Moreover, we believe there is always room for improvement and we never stop working on upgrading our wine cellar products and services. That’s why for most first-time wine cellar DIY-ers, their WCI experience is a pleasant one. Our client Mitchell is no exception – and we’re super happy about that! There might have been some bumps along the way, but the overall journey to create their basement wine cellar was an enjoyable one.

Basement wine cellar with WineMaker racks

The client purchased several kits from our WineMaker Series to complete their basement wine cellar. Not only did the racks fit their budget, but they also worked extremely well with the designated space. They opted for Rustic Pine for the wood which brought in some added savings. Rustic Pine is the most affordable among the top four stock wood options. But it is also no slouch when it comes to quality. In fact, the creamy colors with structurally sound knots of the wood have made it a super popular choice for custom projects. To finish off their basement wine cellar, the racks were then stained in beautiful Dark Walnut.

“My wife and I took our unfinished basement, and built a wine cellar. So once the walls went up, we took some rough measurements, and ordered a whole bunch of stuff from your organization. Ordering was a little tricky but after a call in to someone, we figured it out. The shipping process was great, one day I came home and there were like 100 boxes on my doorstep!!! We tried to keep all the boxes in separate locations, not to mix them up. This process took a long, long, time (weeks) to get all the wood stained. So then came the puzzle, of how all the racks go together, we were fortunate that we had our contractor here to help. We did use the provided nail gun, and that worked fine. We do love this room, and think it came out amazing.”
