Fully Stocked WineMaker Series – Wine Rack Kits

May 3rd, 2012

Just a couple of months back, we featured a cost-effective yet luxurious wine cellar transformation utilizing our WineMaker Series wine racks kit. The satisfied client sent in these gorgeous shots of the wine cellar now that they have finished filing it up. We thought it’s only proper that we should share these wonderful images with everyone since we’re every bit as proud of this project as our clients.

Let’s go first with the image of the short-depth individual bottle storage wine racks. The installation photos were simply beautiful, especially with the way the bottles were lovingly accentuated by the waterfall design of the racks. Also, take a look how that display row literally ‘pops’ out thanks to the short depth racks.


When the client chose to go with the WineMaker Series wine rack kit, it was certainly a clever decision. They remained within budget while being able to turn out a luxurious wine cellar worthy of a Vintner or Designer. If you can recall, we’ve mentioned how WineMaker can give you almost the same racking options as the higher-end kits but at reduced depth. The short-depth racks require less material thus, they are less costly to produce. Nonetheless, you compromise nothing, not when it comes to either function or style. This gorgeous, filled-up wine cellar is definitely a living proof of that! As our client wonderfully phrased it:

“Our wine cellar looks beautiful!”

Here you can see the versatility of the wine cellar decked in WineMaker racks, accommodating almost all bottle sizes despite the reduced depth. In fact, the reduced depth is a huge plus when it comes to aesthetics because the bottles are beautifully highlighted by the unique configurations. We’re also loving the way unstained Premium Redwood works so well with the walls and flooring of the wine cellar to create a classy yet semi-vintage appeal. Note that while the racks lack the beveled rails and eased edges sported by higher-end kits, they are still capable of achieving a seamless composition.

So that wraps up yet another completed wine cellar project! Have you also purchased WCI wine racks and other wine cellar accessories before? Send us some shots on how you worked our stuff into your wine cellars and created your own magical transformations. We’re only too happy to feature them for all wine cellar enthusiasts to appreciate and enjoy ^_^. Have a great weekend ahead, wine lovers! *Cheers*

Wine Cellar Magic With WineMaker

May 4th, 2011

Magic!Do you believe in magic? Well, not the Walt Disney kind of bibbity boppity boo but the kind that makes you go “wow” when you see something transform from ordinary to amazing. It’s the kind of fairy tail you experience when you get a totally hot makeover from a professional artist, put on a designer dress, killer heels and turn heads when you enter a room. Remember, even Cinderella knew the importance of a good dress and more so with the shoes (come on, those glass slippers stole the Prince’s heart!), so even when it’s not exactly done with a fairy godmother, there are still transformations that are at best, magical.

Why WineMaker?

So let’s talk about wine cellars because at WCI, if there’s one kind of magic we CAN do, it’s making wine cellar dreams come true. If you’ve scoured through our Photo Galleries, you can easily see that we can bring about transformations that would please even the most discriminating wine enthusiast and we do this by merging quality and style to bring about a truly outstanding result. And if you’ve taken the time to follow our blogs, we’ve already talked about one of our prized products, our solid collection of wine racks.

Now we’ve talked about the ever versatile Vintner, the classy Designer, and the vintagey Rustic Pine, but we can still go to it one better! If you still haven’t heard of our WineMaker Series or have somehow forgotten about it, it’s high-time you learned more about it. Why so? Because when you wish to get maximum storage options, a cost-effective package, and a truly impressive wine cellar transformation, the WineMaker Series can bring it all to your doorstep.

The WineMaker Series is actually a spinoff of the very popular Vintner Series, but at an attractively affordable package. Our wine racks are as flexible as Vintner and specifically designed to be stacked one on top of another to create a seamless, sleek for your wine cellar. In terms of space-efficiency and storage options, WineMaker covers all the bases with additional plus points for style. The racks are now available in Premium Redwood and Rustic Pine, and can be dressed up and down with the right play of stain options and custom finishes. Thus, you can choose to turn your wine cellar into a luxurious haven for the most discerning of wine connoisseurs or go for contemporary chic with the help of WineMaker Series Moldings.

WineMaker Moldings

More than just a Cinderella story

Well, you just can’t forget how Cinderella managed to secure a “happily ever after” after she donned on that fabulous white gown and glass slippers but your wine cellar will get an even happier ending when you dress it up with our WineMaker Series. Knowing how to mix, match, and stack our individual bottle racks, diamond and rectangular bins for bulk storage, various wine displays, tasteful quarter round shelves, and super stylish waterfall falling racks will give you a transformation that can last a lifetime.

WineMaker Base PlatformsAnd here’s something noteworthy: with the WineMaker Series Base Platforms, your wine racks are fully supported and even allowing you to maximize rack heights in your wine cellar. This makes for practically limitless ceiling height configurations, no matter how moderate or large the size of your wine cellar may be.

Just like the posh Vintner Series, WineMaker wine racks can go from floor to ceiling in any height over 6 feet.  Our racks come in one foot increments ingeniously achieved by combining 3-feet and 4-feet sections. Together with the base platform and crown molding options,  you pull together fresh and distinctive look for wine cellar while at the same time piling in potential savings by using kits rather than constructing a custom wine cellar from scratch. In addition, with the assorted stain options and custom finishes we provide here at WCI (you can refer to our Interactive Swatch Viewer and Stain & Finish Review), your base platforms can be in total design harmony with your entire wine cellar furniture.

So, I’m going to ask you differently now: do you believe in wine cellar magic? The kind that will make guests go “wow” when they step into a truly gorgeous wine cellar? Because if you still don’t, then let us WCI weave magic for you!

Wine Rack Kits To Die For: The WineMaker Series

February 23rd, 2011

If you can’t get enough of wines, well, we can’t get enough of wine racks.

That’s why we never stop finding ways to create, modify and upgrade our wine rack collections for you.

Take for example the very modular Vintner Series. We re-manufactured them to make them more cost effective, hence, the birth of the WineMaker Series! It has all the qualities of the Vintner.  Space-efficient and visually appealing, you get to enjoy plenty of wine racking styles and wine display options, and we just made it even more affordable.

The Vintner becomes the WineMaker

Just like the Vintner, the WineMaker series boasts of these qualities:

  • Versatile wine racking
  • Versatile height – can accommodate just about any ceiling height
  • Custom, organized look at affordable prices
  • Many racking styles and display options

The WineMaker Series wine racks is currently available in Premium Redwood and Pine, with many stain options to choose from just like the Vintner.

Here is a quick video walk through about our WineMaker Series:

So what’s the difference?

The only difference is, to make this wine rack line more cost effective, they were built with reduced depth compared to the Vintner. Don’t worry though. Reduced depth allows the slender necks of your wine bottles to stick out nicely. For an additional cost savings, the beveling the ends of individual bottle rails was not implemented, but the rails still have the same round-over to ensure the labels due not tear as you slide your wine bottles in-and-out.

If there’s one thing unique to the WineMaker, it’s the availability of 15 degree wine bottle display rows.  Also, since the display row extends past the front of the rack, the WineMaker allows for greater visibility of wine labels.

There are also many molding options and base platforms to choose from to finish your WineMaker Series wine wine racks. Why, we have six unique crown molding options that vary in profile and height! Because it’s stackable (Stacking them is so easy! Your racks can soar up to the ceiling!), you can create a seamless floor-to-ceiling look when you go for the WineMaker racks and their attractive molding options.

If you want to see what we’re talking about, check out the single column individual storage racks, diamond bin racks (Purchase two or more to stack on top of each other to maximize the height of your wine storage!) and the 3-column rectangular bins.

Looking for other options? Last year we talked about our on Traditional Wine Racks, Designer Series collection, and before that, our Vintner Series collection. Be sure to view our handy wine rack kit comparison chart as well.

The WineMaker Series is indeed great choice whether you’re just starting to collect wines, or making more room for your huge collection. A lovely space-saver and truly budget-friendly without sacrificing style and functionality, it’s definitely a worthy investment.
