Meeting the Client and Starting the Project

The Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club is among the finest private clubhouses in Orange County, California.  The 36-hole country club features a 44,000 square foot clubhouse thatis an ideal setting for weddings, business meetings, and private parties.  The club recently remodeled Preserve, their upscale dining room, to include a 1,380-bottle capacity wine enclave, where members can store and display their private collections.

In November 2013, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars was contacted by an architectural firm in San Diego, California.  They wanted to add a glass covered custom wine enclave to the newly remodeled Preserve Dining Room.  The room measures 11’ wide, 2’ deep and about 9’ tall.  After several consultations, and a couple of site visits, Coastal prepared a three dimensional design.

A 3D wine celalar design work from Coastal provides a three dimensional illustration of the proposed wine cellar design.  The wine cellar design package includes plan views (elevations and 3D views), total bottle capacities, construction guidelines, and an audio/video tour of the design.

The Wine Cellar Design Features

Stunning Metal Wine Rack Displays

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, SoCal’s leading expert in wine cellar design and construction, created a climate-controlled commercial display wine room, encased in glass, that features VintageView metal wine rack displays.

Three sets of seamless 1/2″ glass doors provide access to the wine enclave.  To stabilize the climate conditions inside the wine storage space, the Coastal team recommended a Model D088 from Wine Guardian.

Unlike wood-based wine racks, metal wine rack displays provide a contemporary look that will go well with any modern interior.  VintageView metal wine rack displays are designed to hold bottles in a label forward orientation, allowing for ease of product recognition.

The horizontal placement of the bottles also helps maintain the continuous contact of the cork with the wine, thereby ensuring its sealing quality.

To increase the total bottle capacity of the custom wine enclave Coto de Caza CA, the Coastal team installed metal wine displays in single and triple deep configurations.

Triple depth wine racks can hold three bottles in a single row; two wine bottles are stored behind the visible bottle.

The metal wine racks are mostly label forward horizontal displays.  A presentation row running the width of the racking system was also installed, for showcasing the finest wine bottles in the collection.

The metal wine rack displays come in a black satin finish, to give them a stainless steel effect.  A three deep configuration wine display rack is located right in front of the series of glass doors that lead to the wine enclosure.

Single deep display racking is installed on the rear, fixed glass panel.  The wine rack design is set up in such a way that the bottles appear as if they are floating when viewed from the outside.

Tempered Glass Walls and Doors

The glass covered custom wine enclave is an aesthetically pleasing addition to the clubhouse’s Preserve Dining Room.  The heavy duty glass doors are hinged on self-closing, commercial grade pivot sets.

To maintain the ideal wine storage temperature of 58 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity between 50 to 60 percent, the Coastal team recommended a self-contained air duct handler, by Wine Guardian.

After conducting a heat load calculation, it was determined that the Model D088 wine cellar cooling unit would most efficiently cool the glass encased wine cellar.

Wine Guardian is a world-renowned manufacturer and provider of wine cellar cooling solutions.  Their wine cellar cooling products provide whisper-quiet operation and superior cooling performance.  They offer different types of cooling systems, including through the wall units, split cooling systems, ducted units, and humidifiers.

The Model D088 is a self-contained, fully ducted wine cellar cooling unit, that is ideal for medium to large residential and commercial wine cellars.  This cooling unit not only provides optimum temperature and humidity control, but also adds to the aesthetic quality of the wine storage space.

Since this wine cellar cooling unit can be ducted up to 25 feet away from the wine enclosure, it eliminates the presence of mechanical equipment in the room, thus promoting a quiet storage environment.

For this particular project, the cooling unit was placed in the ceiling.  Installing the climate control unit out of sight eliminates any presence of mechanical equipment in the custom wine enclave Coto de Caza CA, and allows the wine cellar builder to maximize available space.  Ceiling mounted units also provide better air distribution and circulation.

Unique Residential Wine Cellar with Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racks Installed

Written by

To keep your wine collection safe, you need to have a wine storage solution built. Your wine storage solution does not have to be dull and boring. Your wine storage space can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. One way you can make a wine cellar more interesting is by choosing a beautiful wine racking system. One of the most elegant wine racking systems in Vancouver, Canada is Vintage View Wine Racks

A Residential Wine Cellar is a Basic Need for Wine Collectors

In the past, wine was something that only the rich could acquire. More specifically, only those with royal blood could enjoy wine on a regular basis. But these days, almost everybody has easy access to wine, and what’s more, almost anyone can start their own wine collection. If you are one of those who wish to start their own wine collection, you need think about having a place to keep it. Wines are very delicate, and they need to be stored in very specific temperature and humidity levels in order for them to remain at a good quality. There are various ways you can store wine, but the most ideal storage solution in Vancouver, Canada, is a residential custom wine cellar.

Designing Your Wine Cellar to Stand Out

As more and more people in Vancouver, Canada are starting their own wine collection, many of them are having wine cellars built. More specifically, they are having their wine cellars constructed in their own homes. Since a lot of homes now have their own residential wine cellar, it is a challenge for new wine collectors to make their wine cellar stand out from the rest. One way to make a home custom wine cellar unique is by choosing what kind of wine racks to install. One of the most unique and beautifully designed wine racking systems is the Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racking System by Blue Grouse Wine Cellars.

What are Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racks?

There are many kinds of wine racking systems in Canada. They vary in sizes, shapes, designs, and materials. One of the most beautiful types of wine racking systems is the Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racking System. This kind of wine rack allows wine bottle labels to be visible, because the bottles are positioned horizontally, unlike in the traditional wine racking setup wherein only the wine corks can be seen. Also, what makes Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racks a great option is that they are built in such a way that they can be stacked or cut for the perfect fit in almost any wine storage solution.

Wine Cellar Construction Project with Vintage View Wine Racks Installed

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars is one of the leading companies in Vancouver, Canada, that designs and builds effective, durable, and beautiful wine cellars, both for residential and commercial purposes. One of Blue Grouse’s most recent projects is a contemporary looking home wine cellar built in Vancouver, Canada.

The area in the client’s home to be turned into a residential wine cellar was an L-shaped room. One of the biggest challenges faced in this project was the limited space, and Blue Grouse dealt with this by renovating the entire room and created inset cubbies. These inset cubbies were built into the room’s wall; the wine racks were placed in these cubbies. The wine racks were made to be even with the cubbies, and did not stick out past the depth of the walls.

One of the best features in this residential wine cellar is the wine racking system that was installed. Blue Grouse Wine Cellars mounted Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racks, with brush nickel finish applied. The racks in this particular wine cellar were 3 bottles deep. Although you may choose from 1-bottle to 3-bottles deep options with Vintage View Wine Racks, all three options vary slightly in price. Since their prices aren’t very different from each other, most wine enthusiasts choose to have their wine racking system at 3-bottles deep, so that they can opt to expand their collection should they want to in the future. The racks in this home wine cellar were front-loaded, but should the wine collection expand, each rack still has 2 more wine bottle slots available.

At the corner of the residential custom wine cellar room, a little display area was included. Wooden cases can be placed in this display area.

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars is one of the primary suppliers of Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racks in Vancouver, Canada. Vintage View Wine Racks come in various custom color options, that range from satin black to brushed nickel standard finishes. Compared to other types of wine racking systems, Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racks provide more bottle density and offer a safer wine storage solution because of their rugged steel design.

Vintage View Wine Racks are built in such a way that air can flow through the racks around each wine bottle, and evenly distribute the wine cellar’s cool temperature to every bottle. This design feature makes Vintage View Wine Racks ideal for long term wine storage.

Compared to standard wine racking systems, Vintage View Wine Racks are relatively easy to install. But if you prefer to have a professional install them for you, Blue Grouse offers installation services for these racks too. Their installation services are available for customers who are within the Vancouver lower mainland area. Vintage View Wine Racks are also relatively easy to maintain, and can last a very long time if maintained properly. Blue Grouse offers a limited lifetime guarantee for their Vintage View Wall Mounted Wine Racking System.

Blue Grouse supplies Vintage View Wine Racks outside of the US and has them manufactured abroad. Clients in Canada will incur freight charges, as well as duty and brokerage fees, on top of the racking system’s selling price. Blue Grouse makes these wine racks less costly by importing them in bulk quantities, and keeping them in their warehouses located in North Vancouver, BC.

Although Blue Grouse is based in Canada, they have clients in the United States, and these clients have their Vintage View Wine Racks shipped directly from the supplier in order to avoid import fees. A shipping charge will apply, which will be quoted depending on the client’s location.
