Tech Tuesday – Episode #9 – Premium Redwood Stained in Dark Walnut

November 9th, 2010

How’s everyone today? We hope you didn’t miss last week’s Tech Tuesday — a pretty huge residential wine cellar in Lone Tree, CO. We hope you liked it!

Today we’re featuring another residential cellar in Ridgedale, MO  — a smaller one this time, but definitely big on warmth and aesthetics. Creatively combining wine rack kits and custom racking, our client, the Vaughns, chose the Gold Series and some options of Designer Series wine rack kits for their wine cellar, which provides both full depth racking and a variety of wine storage options. The Gold Series is a favorite when it comes to balancing beauty and budget.

Vaughn Wine Cellar Installation

What: Residential Custom Wine Cellar
Project #: 205559
Wood: Premium Redwood, stained in Dark Walnut
Maximum storage capacity:  784 wine bottles
Where: Ridgedale, MO
When: Completed September 30, 2010

Built to house 784 wine bottles, this wine cellar is made from Premium redwood stained in beautiful Dark walnut. We love the dark and light contrast of the racks and the walls and tile flooring – simplicity is indeed beauty! Featuring single and double deep storage, rectangular bins, solid diamond bins, a lovely railed archway and more, it’s easy to fall in love with this residential wine cellar.

Why, owners Dan and Beth Vaughn can’t stop raving about their brand new wine cellar! “All is great.  Joe has done a wonderful job.  The wine cellar looks wonderful.  Very clean, and ready to be loaded.  We thought that you and Joe both did a great job working with us and we have been very pleased with the installation and the final product,” says Beth.

These magnificent wine racks offer plenty of spacing for half bottles, standard wine, champagne, magnums, and larger sizes. We’re pretty sure the Vaughns enjoy stocking their wine cellar, as each bin compartment of the rectangular bin wine racks are designed to hold 12 single deep standard Bordeaux or Burgundy wine bottles, or 24 double deep. Those solid diamond bins also allow them to stock up to 9 magnums, 12 champagnes or 16 standard wine bottles.

In fact, just days after installation, the owners had a party in their home and this is what Beth had to say, “We had our party just days after Joe finished the installation and Dan loaded our bottles into the cellar. The wine cellar racks were beautiful and gave us a chance to let our guests know what a great job all of you at Wine Cellar Innovations did for us. We are very pleased. When we get a chance to recommend your company, we will do so with full confidence.  Thank you!”

Joe, ladies and gentlemen, is our Installation Manager. In case this is your first time here, we are proud to say that our installation team has completed countless installations from residential to commercial all over the world. If you have any questions on installation and assembly, our doors are open for consultation.

Anyway, back to the wine racks. Don’t you just love the dark walnut stain on this one? We think what really draws attention to this wine cellar is the railed archway and the solid diamond bins below it. It’s simple, really, and there’s nothing too intricate about it, but it’s the focus of the entire wine cellar – aside from the wines of course. It makes a warm welcoming sight!

Overall, we just love how everything looks seamless. The Vaughns should definitely throw another party soon to show off their collection and their lovely wine cellar.

Wine Rack Kits To Die For: The Designer Series (Part II of III)

October 28th, 2010

A look at Wine Cellar Innovation’s different wine rack versions for various needs, tastes, and budgets!

Yesterday we talked about one of our wine rack kit collections. If you missed it, check out our feature on the Vintner Series. You can also take a look at the Vintner wine racks on our website.

Today we’d like to introduce you to our Designer Series – attractive, contemporary and clean-styled designs that are definitely to die for! Because of these wine racks’ flexibility, quality and excellent wine-storage options, they are perfect for both small living spaces and full wine-cellars!

The Designer Series


Boasting of the ultimate blend of quality, cost, and craftsmanship, our Designer Series utilizes the best portions of our custom amenities, and mixes in the affordability of a mass produced item to offer you the best value for your money.

These wine racks are all six feet tall, and are designed to accommodate wine bottles that are 3 – 3½” in diameter. Like our Vintner Series, it has the same bottle slot width of 3 13/16” which means it can still fit your larger Bordeaux and Burgundy wine bottles. It features full-depth wooden wine racks at 13 ½” deep, where each bottle is cradled on two rails that are cut with beveled ends and rounded edges. This ensures that the labels will not tear whenever you remove the bottles. This series is available in a variety of wood and different stain options.

Adding a bit of style and more creative storage options are our vertical wine displays, quarter round shelves, and waterfall wine racks!  Worth checking out are the pretty diamond cube and diamond bins, which feature a decorative face trim, as well the table tops (and archways).

This series also boasts of wine rack kits with wine display rows, including the curved corners.  They are also structurally designed to accommodate additional wine storage above racking, making them an ideal wine racking system for every wine lover!

With our Designer Series wine racks, you’ll have elegance and sophistication combined with creative storage space for your growing wine collection!
