Technical Tuesday – Episode #57 – Extra Roomy Residential Wine Cellar

October 18th, 2011

Hey, Tech Tuesday fans! Are you ready for today’s uber awesome episode? We’ve been terribly excited to feature this absolutely fantastic residential wine cellar because we’re comparing it to a really fab ensemble. If this wine cellar were a designer outfit, it would be runway perfect!

What: Residential Wine Cellar
Project #: 210474
Wood: Premium Redwood, Gold/Vintner Series
Maximum Capacity:  2433 bottles
Where: Kennett SQ, PA

The sheer versatility of the Vintner Series has never been so accurately showcased as it is in this wine cellar which perfectly balanced out aesthetics with full functionality. Over 2,000 wine bottles are expected to be stored  here with a lot of leg room for champagne and other spirits, including magnum-sized bottles. See how everything was put to good use, maximizing every inch of the wine cellar room and with complete provisions for individual and bulk bottle storage.

are always a thumbs-up when you want your wine cellar to be stylish, space-efficient, and eye-catching all at the same time. The client didn’t miss out on this and grabbed the opportunity to place those waterfall wine racks smack in the center of the room.

Remember how we’ve always talked about corners, curves, and circles really turning a phrase when it comes to wine cellars? Check out how this circular wine merchandiser makes an exclamation point in this one! There’s really something to be said about circular merchandisers and creating wine storage options with a flair. This scores bonus points for organization and accessibility as well since your more popular spirits can now be at an easy reach and displayed to their full vantage point.


The standout feature of the Gold Series is how it can provide both full depth racking and an assortment of wine storage options at a very attractive price that is light and easy on the wallet. Here, you can see how individual and bulk storage come together in a series of wine racking options that create a seamless transition from wall to wall and from wall to floor.

All the racks are stained in Dark Walnut finish for a rich, vintagey look to the wine cellar, working really well with those semi-antique ceiling lamps. The color will also create a nice contrast with the amber-filled bottles later on and since the client incorporated LED lighting for all 15-degree high reveals, the completed look will be nothing short of gorgeous.

A simple but classic wine cellar door creates a beautiful finishing touch to the entire layout. It doesn’t distract from the strong aesthetics of the wine cellar and makes for a nice little camouflage: through that seemingly tiny door lies a wine cellar room holding over thousands of wine bottles!

Once you don the perfect dress, all you need would be the perfect make-up and you’re ready to conquer the runway. All this Tech Tuesday’s beauty needs is to fill those racks up and it’s another wine cellar conquest for the amazing and experienced design specialists here at WCI!

Technical Tuesday – Episode #52 Spare Room Turned Wine Wine Cellar

September 13th, 2011

Wine cellars that make you go wow.

This is what we bring you every Tuesday, and we hope the past wine cellar features have inspired you to build your own wine cellar or have some racks customized for your store or restaurant. As to why you should have your cellar custom-made, we need not say more, do we? We let the pictures speak for themselves, such as last week’s beautiful Premium Redwood residential wine room. What did you think of it?

Today’s wine cellar shows you what you can do with that extra space in your home, such as an extra room under the stairs!

What: Residential Wine Cellar
Project #: 211617-3
Wood: Premium Redwood, Gold/Vintner Series
Maximum Capacity:  1223 bottles
Where: Water Mill, NY

When you’re planning to build a wine cellar in your home, the first question is usually where to place it. This would all depend on how big or small your wine collection is of course. If you have  a small one you’d probably opt for some wine racks in your dining room or kitchen, or go for a wine cabinet. But if you’ve got a spare room in the house, such as this space under the client’s staircase, it’s also a perfect place to build your dream wine cellar. All you need is a great wine cellar designer to make it all come true!

Just like last week’s wine cellar, this wine room features Premium Redwood wine racks. Only this time, they’re unstained, showing off the bare beauty of the wood. Naturally resistant to the cool, humid atmosphere desired for long-term wine storage, Premium Redwood has long been a favorite of wine cellar builders and wine lovers alike. It’s easy to see why. Just look closely at the pretty shades/colors of the wood in these photos. They range from brown, pinkish, creamy to reddish hues!

This wine cellar combines the best elements of the Gold Series and the Vintner Series — cost-effective wine racks that allow you to maximize wine storage, as well as easily grow your collection. The room’s space is maximized with individual storage racking, high reveal displays, open diamond bins and open vertical display bins. LED lighting highlights the lovely archway and some sections of the racks. It’s beautiful how LED lights add warmth to the room, right?

The main attraction of this wine room is really its wine racks. Unstained Redwood is a thing of beauty, isn’t it? Even the standard door is made of Redwood too! No etchings here or wrought iron grills like the other fancy wine cellar doors we’ve seen in other cellars. What you see is what you get, and when it comes to Redwood, what you get are beauty and durability.

All in all, we love how this spare room was transformed into a simple yet beautiful wine room. Whether it’s a spare room, your basement or your garage, you can do so much with your available space to house your wine collection!

Technical Tuesday – Episode #51 – Custom Wine Cellar in Rochester, New York

September 6th, 2011

Ahh, September.

Can you believe we’re just a few months away from the happiest month of the year? How would you rate your 2011 so far? We hope you’ve accomplished many of the goals you made at the start of the year. Whatever ups and downs you’ve had so far, we can only tell you one thing: never stop dreaming and believing!

Speaking of dreaming, we’re kickstarting September with a dream — another beautiful residential wine cellar! If you don’t have a wine cellar yet and are thinking of building one in your home soon, let this custom wine cellar be an inspiration.

What: Residential Wine Cellar
Project #: 212346
Wood: Premium Redwood, Gold/Vintner Series
Maximum Capacity: 985 bottles
Where: Rochester, NY

Dark wood takes the stage again. Remember last week’s dark weathered All Heart Redwood wine cellar with custom cabinetry? This time, Premium Redwood shows off its own unique beauty. The client chose the Gold  Series for their wine room — the perfect choice for those who want beauty and budget balanced. Add some Vintner wine racks and you’ve got a wine cellar that’s truly reflective of beauty, practicality and functionality. How would you like to step into your own little world of wines?

Because this wine room has enough room to move around in, one can clearly see and admire the the full depth racking and a variety of wine storage options offered by the Gold Series. You see here a great combination of styles — single and double deep individual storage racks, 15 degree displays, quarter round shelves, rectangular bin wine racks, a standard archway and open diamond bins. Lots of storage space to store lots of wine!

Premium Redwood, one of the best woods of choice for wine cellars, looks absolutely beautiful in a dark walnut stain don’t you think? We’re loving the intricate details of this wine room’s ceiling — its color not only matches the dark colored wine racks; it also adds artistry to the entire room! We’ve written about wine ceilings before and how they can make a difference in the overall look of your wine cellar. One for example talks about how important is it to have well-crafted ceiling in your wine cellar.

And what about the lights? LED lighting for wine cellars never disappoint because these energy efficient wonders do a great job of creating mood in the room and highlighting special areas in a wine room!

So what’s our favorite thing about this wine cellar? Well, it does a great job of showing us that even if you’re on a budget (and therefore go for the Gold/Vintner Series collection), your wine cellar can still manage to look like a million dollars! You can always include the best of the best when it comes to your wine room. But when you are limited by either space or budget constraints, a custom design allows you the freedom to be creative and maximize your existing space!
