Build Custom Wine Cellars With Your Michigan Wine Cellar Design Consultant
The state of Michigan is home to a lakes, ponds and peninsulas. It is the only state to consist of two peninsulas and has the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the world. That is because it is being bounded by four of the Five Great Lakes. In fact, the state's name originates from the Ojibwe word "mishigamaa" which translates to "large water" or "large lake." As far as economy is concerned, it is a leading grower of fruit in the USA. That includes grapes! And that's why more Michigan homes have gotten into wine cellar construction. We have designed for several clients in the state, including wine stores and restaurants. If you're planning to build your own, our Michigan wine cellar design consultant is ready to help you out!

Michigan Wine Cellars & Wine Racks
project #219362 in Grosse Pointe, MI
This gorgeous glass-enclosed wine cellar project for our Michigan client "worked perfectly" for them. The had WCI racks in unstained Premium Redwood installed in the dining room. This fast became an attractive focal point of their dining area - as well as of the entire home. The client was undoubtedly happy with the way their custom wine cellar turned out - and so are we!
project #274569 - Macomb, Michigan
Elegant and professionally done, but affordable! This wine cellar certainly lived up to the client's expectations and more. The racks were all in Rustic Pine, dressed up with a beautiful Classic Mahogany stain option. But to enhance the elegant appearance even more, lacquer was also added to give the racks a glossy finish.
"I think it turned out awesome. Easy to assemble. I did use a nail gun. I would definitely recommend this system!" ~Robert E.~
project #261198 - Conklin, Michigan Wine Racks
The picture client sent us of their completed wine cellar says it all. The wine cellar was actually Ron's Christmas present to his wife and what an amazing Christmas present it was. The racks were all from the Designer Series wine racks kit and fit their space perfectly. Moreover, since the racks were crafted from Premium Redwood, they look absolutely elegant even in their unstained version. The clients started filling out their wine cellar but with the generous bottle storage space, they will have many enjoyable years growing their collection together.
project #173343 - Saint Joseph, MI
As far as unique wine cellars go, this one is certainly on top of the list. The room is not the usual easy, four-walled space that you can just build your racking assembly on. It's a circular layout that requires patience when it comes to the wine cellar design. But like we always say, no space is impossible to work with when you go for the WCI custom wine racking units. The racks were designed for larger-format wine bottles, and shelves for the bins and cases. Even the wood option is unique, with the client going for White Oak, instead of the usual Redwood, Pine, or Mahogany. The medium brown shades tinged with olive accentuated the amber-colored wine bottles beautifully.

4 Questions to Ask Before Planning Your Michigan Wine Cellar
What's the difference between a wine fridge and a wine cabinet?
A wine fridge can only hold a much smaller number of bottles compared to a wine cabinet
. There is also less design options with a wine fridge because of the limited storage capacity. With a wine cabinet, you can have it designed to match any existing decor and make it look "built-in." It's also recommended for those with a small but growing collection to invest in a wine cabinet that can provide more bottle storage space.
Do all wine racks have to be secured or wall mounted?
Wine racks actually come in a number of configurations. Let's take the VintageView Series metal wine racks
as an example. They are originally designed to be mounted against the wall. But there is also an option to display them floor-to-ceiling. You will have to purchase a floor-to-ceiling frame for this purpose. But it will create a beautiful "floating" look for your wine bottles.
What are the latest trends in wine cellars?
Wine cellars are no longer just about wood wine racks and furniture. These days, the trend towards modern wine cellars
is growing, with emphasis on other materials, such as metal and acrylic. Also, mixing various elements such as wood, metal, and glass in wine cellar projects can give even more eye-catching results.
What's the best wine cellar door to have?
There are tons of styles when it comes to wine cellar doors
. You can have an all-wood entryway, a glass-paneled one, or a combination of both. There are also so many designs, including those incorporating wood carvings, glass etchings, and wrought iron. The most essential points to keep in mind when choosing a wine cellar door is that it must be of high quality, it can properly seal in your wine room, and have an excellent warranty.
Assembling the racks was much easier once I watched the YouTube videos made by your team. The written directions made more sense after watching the videos. I would recommend watching them to any client who is doing this assembly themselves. I did use a nail gun. No problems with delivery of the product. Fabian was super helpful. He was very patient. He followed up with me to make sure we got what we needed. I found a granite remnant that I had cut inexpensively and added that piece and a light to the original plan.
Here are a couple of photos showing our racks in our climate-controlled wine room at the about-to-open Mott Community College Culinary Arts Institute in Flint, Michigan. One shows the room under construction and another shows the racks installed. A small room behind provides wire racks for case storage. We can handle 30 cases in addition to the 190 bottles in the racks and it will undoubtedly take a while before fully charged, if ever! We have not started to fill the racks with wine yet since the building won't open until May 8th.
The new Culinary Arts Institute facility is moving from the main campus and being created in a 36,000 s.f. century old building in downtown Flint, Michigan (recent construction photo attached; the plywood band will be covered with black aluminum). It has been over two years in the making, with over a year of construction, and includes two cooking labs, two baking labs, a confections lab and a meat fabrication lab, two full bars, and a garde manger classroom, as well as several meeting rooms (one with a demonstration kitchen), the Applewood Cafe fine dining room and a Coffee Beanery. Applewood and the Beanery will be open to the public. Each lab can accommodate 16 students so we have a capacity of 96 students for each class period of which there will be two per day. I can rhapsodize for hours, but will stop with that for now. Certainly can provide more detail should you wish.
The racks arrived just as you said and went together very well with our contractor, D.W.Lurvey Construction of Flint, using a brad nailer. We were missing the six X's in the racks but a quick note to Jennifer and we had those within two days by FedEx. Kudos to your entire team for making this a painless process for us.

I have purchased the Vintner Series wine racks and a cooling systems from Wine Cellars innovations for two wine cellars I have installed over the years. I would definitely do it again because I like that they offer a free design, and have competitive pricing and fantastic customer service. Rachel and Oscar were great to work with and very helpful.

Our commercial wine racks are great. We use them in our boutique wine shop and wine bar housed within the J Petter Galleries Fine Art Gallery in Holland, MI.
I own Closet Connection in Muskegon, Michigan and they asked for a wine cellar so I said 'why not!?'. It actually turned out really well and they loved it.

My Traditional Series racks look great. We love them! We are moving soon and will be ordering a few more racks to be added to our collection in the new house.

Steve K. - #253193
Easy assembly for Vintner racks I purchased. Used an air gun and it worked well.
