Wine Cellar Inspirations: Wine Cellar Services You Shouldn’t Miss Out On

May 8th, 2019

Is there a way to save money and/or stay within or under budget with your wine cellar project? You bet there is! Apart from taking great care in the selection of products and materials, there are other ways to save. You can do this by knowing what wine cellar services you shouldn’t miss out on. By this, we mean those complimentary services most wine cellar construction companies offer. We’ve compiled some of the major ones for you:

Request a free design!

Initial consultation or request a design…

At the very beginning of any wine cellar project, you will certainly need to seek some professional guidance. This is particularly essential if you’re a newbie with wine cellar construction. While it is no rocket science, there are still crucial details that will make a huge difference with your project. Now here’s one thing you shouldn’t forget: to take advantage of free initial consultation and design services. That’s right! Plenty of wine cellar companies actually offer these services free of charge – and WCI is one of them. If you visit the WCI website, we have a Design Request Form that potential clients can fill out. You may submit a plan to any of our wine cellar design consultants and request a complimentary 2-dimensional drawing of your wine cellar. The design features a quoted price for the cellar, a plan view, key page, elevations of each wall, and a molding plan. You also get an optional ceiling plan if a raised panel ceiling is requested.

Have your wine racks shipped for free!

Free product shipping services…

Never underestimate the dollars you will save on free product shipping. Understandably, some clients get frustrated when they can get free shipping only if a minimum purchase amount is met. But think about how much it will actually cost when you have to pay for shipping. Keep in mind that wine cellar products, such as wine racks, need to be packaged properly. Otherwise, you will find yourself with missing pieces or worse, damaged products. Here at WCI, we offer everyday shipping on most of our wood wine rack kits. Of course, this applies to online kits and not to custom orders. Nonetheless, we guarantee great savings for our clients on this complimentary service.

Dont miss out on free DIY tutorials!

Free online educational/instructional services…

Whether you’re going to let professionals build your wine cellar or go at it DIY, gaining knowledge on the process is necessary. But you don’t need to shell out extra bucks to get that valuable information. A lot of wine cellar companies, like us at WCI, offer free online educational and/or instructional services. Our most notable one is our free On-Line Continued Education. The program provides an overview of the design and construction requirements for wine storage. It includes room build out, the best suitable wood types to use, and climate control. ^_^


We Had A Blast This 2018 And We Hope You Did Too!

December 31st, 2018

We had a blast this 2018 and we hope you did, too! It was such a productive year for us here at WCI. There were fantastic product launches that really made a mark in the wine cellar construction business. Props to our Modern Wine Cellar Series for leading the pack! From the Contemporary Cable Wine Racking System down to the Invisible Wine Rack Series, and our latest Steel Rod and Wood Series – the contemporary style is definitely a game changer.

Happy New Year!

Our wine rack kits have stepped it up as well – and not just by a notch or two. The Vintner Series, in particular, has become such a powerhouse product this year. The Vintner Elite Cabinetry line was considerably expanded with the addition of compact cable racking units. Then there was also the launch of the Vintner Bins and Tables which accommodated both residential and commercial wine cellar projects. And speaking of commercial wine cellars, Vintner has really gone full blast with a complete commercial collection as well.

But our wine racking lineup was not the only one that made incredible progress this year. Our selection of wood, stains and finishes was raising the bar as well. The extremely attractive Grand Mahogany saw a great year in wine cellar projects this 2018. Plus, we had three gorgeous additions to our stain and finish options to almost all of our racking products: Whitewash, Graywash, and Opaque White. These options have been made available to more of our wine rack “kits,” and not just our custom lines.

Now with all these amazing improvements this year, what can WCI bring to you and your wine cellars this 2019? All we can say is – we never disappoint! So join us for even bigger and better things in the New Year! *Cheers*

A Very Merry Christmas From All Of Us At WCI!

December 24th, 2018

Christmas Giving

By Iris W. Bray

Christmas is for giving
And for showing that we care,
For honoring the Christ Child
With the loving gifts we share

The wise men gave of riches;
The shepherds, faith and love.
Each gift, in its own measure,
Was smiled on from above.

Let every gift be treasured;
Not always size or price
Determines the extent of love
And willing sacrifice.

Handsome gifts with festive trim
Brings smiles of sweet content,
But modest gifts of humble means
Are ofttimes heaven sent.

Whether it be large or small
Each gift will share in part
The message of true Christmas joy
If given from the heart!

May the love and blessings of this beautiful season fill your homes. Merry, Merry Christmas, everyone! ^_^

April 9th, 2018

What is the extent of WCI’s installation and assembly services? What exactly are you paying us for? Naturally, you can’t be too careful about these things.

So read on and get to know the real deal on our installation and assembly services:

Custom wine cellar assembly and installation

Experienced professionals at your beck and call…

Our team is composed of factory certified installers who perform installation services worldwide. These countless installations include both residential and commercial wine cellar projects. Note that these services do not cover just the wine racking units. Our professionals are also extensively experienced in the installation of wine coolers, LED lights, and other wine cellar accessories.

Typically, the average wine cellar installations takes about four to five days to complete. That means our team will be on-site until the completion of the project. The great advantage though with WCI is that our team works flexible hours. They can carry on all the way down to the weekends to get the job done. And that’s not all! Clients are usually delighted to learn that we also ensure that the work area is cleaned subsequent to the job completion. We understand the frustration of having a messy work area once a project is done. That’s why we threw in a little extra something for you guys.

Post-construction cleanup services included!

That’s not everything yet, though! The installation and assembly services here at WCI also include free consultation on construction requirements for cellars and wine racks. Yes, you read that right. Consultation with the homeowner, architect, or builder on any questions is all part of the wine rack installation process. We offer this free of charge – no hidden fees or charges to catch clients off-guard. So when you contract our services, you can rest assured that you’re getting all of these at the quoted price, no more no less.

With more than sixty years of construction experience, we are quite proud to say that we have a 99% satisfaction rate with installs. Our clients know what to expect and we always do our best to deliver and meet those expectations.
