We Make It Happen With Space-Efficient, Custom Wine Cabinets

July 8th, 2014

Our refrigerated wine cabinets are not exactly the newest products to roll off our production line, but they come with essential features that will certainly be “news” to those who may have overlooked them. First off, consider the reality that not everyone can have decent space for a formal wine room in their homes. Plus, also think about those who’d want to have ample bottle storage space in their offices or other similar venues.

A full-blown racking assembly is out of the question, so how do you go about creating the proper storage environment for your bottles? This is where WCI’s space-efficient custom refrigerated wine cabinets can make it happen for you!

All-In-One Storage Solution!

The Wine Sentinel is the carrier brand in our line of these unique refrigerated bottle storage wonders. Since it’s a custom-built unit, it’s tailored to suit your specific space AND storage needs. That means you don’t have to worry about actually “making space” for it in your home or office. It will work itself out for you!

And here are some essential things you’ll need to know about these all-in-one storage solutions. One, it’s reasonably priced with the complete package pricing starting out at $8,344.90. Two, at such an affordable price range, you get to fully customize the units in any design and color to suit your needs and preferences. There is a ton of wood and stain options available to help you achieve whatever style you desire. Three, the highly important wine cooling unit is actually included in the cabinet which is definitely a huge cost-cutter. Keep in mind that quality wine cooling units are not exactly cheap, but they’re also something one should never scrimp on in a wine cellar project.

Last but not the least, the Wine Sentinel model comes with a beautiful French Door entry for a truly elegant look to your custom wine cabinet. You can also choose to add custom moldings and other decorative accents like the base, crown, casing and door handles to match other existing décor. That way, your wine cabinet will look really built-in!

We Make It Happen With Custom Refrigerated Wine Cabinets

March 19th, 2014

Who here is so NOT ready for a formal wine cellar in their homes? Who here is struggling with budget matters when it comes to this little project? If you’re yelling out a huge YES out there, then you came to the right place because today, we’re going to make your wine cellar wishes come true even though space and budget constraints tell you the opposite.

Now there are basically three major reasons why some people can’t just plunge into the construction for a formal wine cellar. One is because they don’t have enough or the right kind of space in their homes for it. The second reason is of course, due to the unfortunate fact that they are not financially prepared for it. The third and final reason is simply because some people are not too keen on maintaining an actual wine room, especially if they just have a small collection.

While these reasons prove reasonable enough, that doesn’t deter from the fact that you’ll still need to create the right storage conditions for your bottles. Moreover, these reasons shouldn’t stop you as well from realizing a dream cellar for your collection. Fortunately, WCI has come up with what may possibly be some of the best solutions to this dilemma. One of these is custom refrigerated wine cabinets which is exactly what we’ll be talking about today!

Refrigerated wine cabinets are compact wonders that can keep your bottles at their peak taste for years and years to come. They can be customized to suit your storage, space, and even design needs. The customization feature extends to the wine racks, wood choice, cabinet frames, and stains and finishes as well which allows so much room for spicing the style element. Plus, here’s something to keep in mind when ordering your custom wine cabinet: you can use your base, crown, casing, and door handles to match your home’s existing decor and make it appear like it’s truly built in.

Wine Sentinel is the line you’d want to look into if you’re seeking fully customizable units. However, WCI also offers a delicious array of pre-built structures any of which can certainly be an attractive addition to your home:

Note that these wine cabinets come complete with a wine cooling unit (usually from the WineZone series) as well. This simply means that everything is a “package deal” and you don’t have to bother juggling the numbers for the other essentials for your wine storage system.

Wing It With Wine Sentinel!

September 23rd, 2013

Not all of us who enjoy a good glass of wine are also into collecting them. Some of us need just enough to satisfy our palate every mealtime or just enough to serve our wine buddies on those tasting parties. Also, some of us don’t really have that much space for wine closet in our homes, much less a formal wine room. Still, we do need to provide decent storage space for our bottles, unless you want your wine going all bitter. And for this purpose, WCI has come up with the perfect solution in the form of custom, refrigerated wine cabinets!

Designed to satisfy!

The Wine Sentinel is WCI’s household name for custom build, refrigerated cabinets that can cater to any wine lover’s storage dilemmas. The cabinet is designed to suit any space in your home, no matter how compact it may be. Basically, you can get away with enough storage space even when it’s just a corner in your wall, a small section in the dining area or kitchen, or even a spot in the living room. Some can even go as far as having it in the master’s suite!

So what exactly can the Wine Sentinel give you? To be specific, your cabinet will be fully customized to fit into any available space you designate for it in your home. That includes fitting the cabinet to match the ceiling height of your home. A wine cooling unit is already installed which will be primarily responsible in keeping your bottles cool and comfy. Hence, you don’t have to worry about looking for the “right” location for the cabinet since storage conditions will be maintained 24/7 wherever the cabinet may be built.

In addition, you get to choose from an almost limitless variety of styles to give your wine cabinet a look that truly defines your taste. There are tons of wood types and stain options available which you can play around with to match your home’s existing décor. You can do this with both your racks and the exterior of your cabinet! There are also French door options and custom moldings offered so you can really amp the elegance factor of your wine storage. And here’s a smart design tip: try to match the base, crown, casing, and door handles with that of your home’s decorative hardware. Our experienced consultants can certainly help you out with those as well.


“I didn’t have a basement or room for a walk-in wine cellar – the Wine Sentinel custom wine cabinet was a perfect solution. I have started to fill it up so quickly now I am wishing I would’ve planned for more bottle storage! It was obvious from day one that the sales, design, and installation professionals had years of experience in custom projects and their attention to detail and customer satisfaction was second to none. Our design consultant was extremely knowledgeable, and your installer was incredible. What an artist – his attention to detail was amazing! I would recommend your company to anyone considering adding wine storage to their home.”

Simple But Sublime With Le Cache Wine Cabinets

April 8th, 2013

Proper wine storage can be accomplished even if you don’t have a full-blown wine room or wine cellar. There are times when it’s quite difficult to construct a full-scale cellar simply because there isn’t enough space in your home. Or, it could also be that your current budget can’t accommodate such a substantial expense. Nonetheless, you can still manage to provide the right storage for your collection by looking into other practical options, like custom refrigerated wine cabinets.

An array of wine storage choices!

We’ve talked about our popular line of custom refrigerated wine cabinets before, but today, we’ll be focusing on a specific series: the Le Cache Wine Cabinets. This is the best choice for those who prefer a simple yet appealing design for storing their collections. There are actually five style categories you can select from in this series which means you’re provided with extensive versatility in terms of storage options:

Each category will offer you different racking as well as design features. But basically, all cabinets in the Le Cache line are hand-crafted from premium materials and designed to maintain optimal conditions for the proper storage and aging of fine wine. You will also come to find that the cabinets from each of the five categories have been conceptualized by various acclaimed designers, such as Pinnacle Award-winning designer Martin de Blois for our European Series and Berkeley Mills, an acclaimed Bay-area designer of high-quality artisan furniture for our Mission Series.

Similarly, all cabinets are crafted from quality wood species with sealed seams and premium insulation for maximum thermal protection. Units with glass elements come with tinted double-paned glass for UV protection as well. In addition, all units carry CellarPro cooling units and you can also choose which unit from the said wine cooling line you can have installed in your cabinet. So with that, you get to exercise total environment control over your collection thanks to the Electronic Thermostat and Digital Display, Adjustable Humidity Control, and Energy-Saver and Quick-Chill Modes that come with every CellarPro wine cooling unit.

Last but definitely not the least, all cabinet models can be further customized with available modifications and accessories that come with the Le Cache line. You can choose to enhance your cabinet with the following awesome options:
