Technical Tuesday Episode #545: Unbeatable Hues Of All-Heart Redwood

October 12th, 2021

There are some things in this world that are naturally beautiful. You don’t need to do a lot to make their innate beauty shine. Case in point: All-Heart Redwood. It is one of the most desirable wood options for wine cellar projects because of its unbeatable features. Not by any coincidence, today’s Tech Tuesday showcases a charming racking assembly using this wood:

Project # 317214
Wood: Vintner / Allheart Redwood
Bottle Capacity:
Where: Valhalla, NY
Stain: Light

Unbeatable features of All-Heart Redwood!This residential wine room is a pretty spacious one. Clients have been steadily growing their collection and wanted a racking layout that can also accommodate future acquisitions. Our design team tapped into the Vintner Series for the racking units. Since Vintner is so versatile, the wine room was equipped with storage for both individual and bull bottles. This definitely pleased the clients who anticipated purchasing certain labels in bulk. But functionality aside, the more eye-catching feature of this project is really the wood choice for the racks. With the help of our team, clients went with the All-Heart Redwood wood option. The results after the wine room was finished left the clients completely satisfied. All-Heart Redwood in its unstained state is a visual delight of reddish gold hues. The colors are uniform since the wood comes from the center of the log. This consistency, plus the it being a clear grade of wood, amounts to a higher end price tag. Nonetheless, it is an excellent investment.

Only Light Stain is needed to emphasize the wood’s colorsApart from its appearance, All-Heart Redwood is also top tier when it comes to durability. It is the most resistant to moisture, mildew and rot among all North American wood species. Note that it was used in subterranean wine cellars before mechanically climate controlled cellars were invented. All-Heart Redwood also displays high resistance to shrinking, warping, and checking. That means wine racks using this wood option will grow more beautiful with age.

Unbeatable natural hues of All-Heart Redwood!Last but not the least, this wood absorbs stains and finishes extremely well. But thanks to its inherently stunning colors, even simple stains will make your wine racks look incredible. In this project, the racks are dressed up in just a Light Stain option. It gives the wine room that “traditional” vibe which is really classy. Truly, the pros of using All-Heart Redwood in your wine cellar are unbeatable! *Cheers*
