Technical Tuesday Episode #453: Simplicity Is Beauty With Unstained Premium Redwood

December 3rd, 2019

Ho, ho, ho, wine cellar buddies! The month of holiday cheer is finally here. We’re going to kick it off with some Tech Tuesday fun, courtesy of this project using custom racking pieces and our Vintner Series wine racks kit:

Project # 314608
Wood: Custom / Vintner / Premium Redwood
Bottle Capacity: 709
Where: Cincinnati, OH

Simplicity is beauty with unstained Premium RedwoodWith wine cellars, it doesn’t always have to be intricately designed to be beautiful. As the saying goes, “Simplicity is beauty.” A clean and functional design also carries with it a certain charm. In fact, there are more than just a few clients here at WCI who prefer an understated style to an elaborate one. Today’s Tech Tuesday feature is one of those! This compact wine storage showcases the excellent craftsmanship of our racks. It also shows the natural     hues of unstained Premium Redwood. This is definitely a wine cellar that doesn’t pile on the frills and fancies. Yet, it is no way  inferior in both form and function.

Clean and beautiful racking linesAs far as bottle storage capacity is concerned, this wine cellar can actually host a little over 700 bottles. That’s pretty generous, considering the space our team had to work with. You’ll notice in the photos that the room was really properly maximized to accommodate as many bottles as possible. A combination of select units from our versatile Vintner Series and custom racks made all this possible. We especially like the countertop with extra individual bottle storage below.

Another great feature of this project is the variety of bottle storage options. Despite the compact size of the cellar, you can see that there is space for bulk bottle storage, as well as larger format bottles. To top it all off, the racking assembly flows seamlessly. This is thanks to the crown and base moldings and center seam trim. This wine cellar is indeed one of the best examples that simplicity is beauty. Even with the lack of dramatic elements, the quality of the materials and craftsmanship more than make up for it. *Cheers*
